Ladybug Twist & Shout

My granddaughter's nursery is decorated in ladybugs.  I designed this fun quilt for her room with flower-pot pinwheels and ladybugs dancing all over the quilt.  The flower pots are done with a little bit of simple paper piecing.  I used large rick-rack for the flower stems and a bright button for the pinwheel centers..  The ladybugs are appliqued and their anntenae are embroidered.  I added a piano key border using the leftover fabrics.
