    Hi Would like to make this quilt and would like to know - do you do trapunto on the individual blocks before you piece all the blocks together?

    Beautiful quilt. I love it, and I don't quilt but your ladybugs, bird and butterflies would work in scrapbooking and applique which I do like to do. They are beautiful. Thanks for providing the pattern for them. Joyce

    I must say this is a beautiful quilt. I am new to quilting and I was wondering how I can scale this pattern down for a toddler as a blanket/ throw?
