Pick up a ladybug quilt pattern and use it to create beautiful homemade quilts for your friends and family. Everybody needs a lucky ladybug or two in their homes no matter what style bedding or decor they have. The beauty of making your own quilts is that you can experiment with color combinations and personalize your quilts with unique quilting patterns and fabrics.
Pink ladybug rugs and baby bedding for girls is all the rage. Nobody cares that you will never find a ladybug with that particular color scheme in nature; pink and brown is pretty and trendy and that's all that matters. For baby boys, you will want incorporate shades of blue with some neutral fabrics to highlight it to its full potential. Of course there is nothing wrong with natural red and black ladybugs appliqued on the quilt squares either.
