A lap quilt...



Here is my latest project...done.
I can't believe that I uttered nary a whisper while I worked on this quilt.  I just tucked my head down and cut and sewed and sewed and cut.
I am ever so please with how it turned out.  It is very, very me.  Lot's of colors and crazy, cool fabric combinations.  I adore the charcoal gray chevron pattern that I used for the border and for the back as well.  As soon as I found it at Joann's a knew it was the one and I got it for only $3.99 a yard...amazing for a quilter's cotton.  Plus, it washed up to be so soft and lovely, not like a cheap fabric usually would.
Otherwise all of the other fabrics were from my stash.  I spent an evening back in July playing with different combinations until I was happy with what I had.  Then I just did nine patch quilt blocks as my pattern.  It is a quilt for me...for reading under, knitting under, drinking coffee under.  It will be lovely to use in the monthes ahead...Fall is here and I fear the snow and cold is not far behind.
