She’s Done

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , at 7:51 pm by sillydreamer

I finally finished up the lap quilt that I’ve been working on for awhile now.  Originally I picked up one charm pack of Moda Simplicity squares that were calling my name.  I had no idea what I was going to do with them but I had to have them.  I decided to just keep it simple so I went back and bought some more fabric from the same line to add to what I had.   I’m not a very experienced quilter and normally use low loft batting but for this one I used high loft and I have to say I prefer that and will probably use it from now on.  I hand quilted it and then when it came time to do the binding, I sewed it to the back of the quilt and then used a decorative stitch to sew it down to the front.  I love the way it turned out and the fact that it took much less time to do it.   I’ve decided this will be my quilt 🙂

    She’s very pretty. I think I take her as mine too. I have this question that I’ve asked a few blog-people about and no one seems to be getting back to me. So… I’ll ask you too.. I’m a beginner with quilting but I have an idea for a lap quilt and want to try it… I have only the pattern in my head but it looks a lot like this one.. How do you know how much of each fabric to buy? You said you bought one charm pack.. was that close to enough?

  2. Very pretty! I love the colors and patterns.
