While I didn’t just finish this project this week, I haven’t yet shared it on my blog. This is the lap quilt I made for myself, that instead of machine quilting, I decided to tie together. I finished it over the Thanksgiving break at my parents house. While it was easy to do, I will share that I broke two needles trying to pull the yarn through the fabric. Both sides of this quilt are the same patchwork pattern and fabrics. Also, I was able to piece the batting together from the extra pieces of batting I had, which helped me reduce the batting stash I had been acquiring.
I really love this quilt. It was supposed to be a king size quilt for my bed, but after considering how much work it would be to quilt it, I changed my mind. I use this frequently when I am lounging around watching TV. Recently, with how cold it has been, I have been using it as well as an extra blanket on my bed. It is so feminine and cozy.
As always, keep Simply Delighting!!!
