Shabby Roses Beauty revealed...

I know that it's normal for me to be excited when I complete a new Shabby Roses quilt, but I think my newest one has caught my heart more than any other.
Here is the final block in Shabby Roses Beauty - 'Ladybug Dance'...
 She has lovely long lashes...
...daises covering her wings...
...and a pleated skirt that swirls around her little feet when she dances.
Do you like her?

'Ladybug Dance' is the final block in Shabby Roses Beauty, and together with 'Butterfly Blush', 'Owlish Dreams', and 'Avian Beauty', she brings the verse inside the large centre block to life...
And now, the big reveal of the fully pieced quilt top...

Seriously, I *love* this quilt, and am very proud of it!
If someone asked me to show an example of who I am as a designer, I'd show them Shabby Roses Beauty.
Its every inch *me*.
Now to sandwich, quilt and bind it - the final fun part!

I think you know what I'll be doing for the rest of the week?

hugs
Jenny

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
