Small Paper Pieced Ladybird

When I showed you my ladybird pattern a few weeks ago, Leonie commented that it would make a great border for a quilt...

She got me thinking...

I immediately got to work simplifying the pattern then made it smaller. 

Here is my new 5 inch ladybird. 

I think that I prefer the small version to the larger ladybird (but it could just be that I chose better fabrics this time round..)

I reckon that they both need a bit of embroidered detail, but I like them so far.

For those of you keen to give this one a try, the good news is that it is already with a pattern tester.

I am now working on a mini version of my butterfly pattern.
I'm picturing a cute butterfly and ladybird border for a quilt. Hmmm maybe I should add some bees as well, what do you think?

I'm linking up with Show & Tell
