Earlier this week, I finished sewing the binding on a cozy flannel lap quilt. Luckily the sun was shining and the deck was cleared of snow so I could get to my clothesline for a picture.
I fell in love with the preprinted flower fabric designed by Bonnie Sullivan for Maywood Studio. What a great idea to have the look of applique without the work. Guess I am revealing to you all how lazy I can be!
Here are a few closeups of the fabrics and the quilting. The quilting was done by Ange from Quilting on the Mira. Love the design she chose!
The pattern was designed by Bonnie as well, with the quilt finishing at 48" x 60". There are several quilt designs which you can get for free at the Maywood Fabrics web site HERE.
It was a little tricky waiting for the wind to die down to take a pic, so I waited a bit more but it was still pretty windy.
Finally I decided to hang it on the deck which gives you a better idea of the design but the colours are a bit subdued.
Remember I was having laptop woes? They weren't fixable without investing in a fair bit of money so it made more sense to bite the bullet and just buy a new one. My last one was 8 years old so I guess it didn't owe me much! This time around, the laptop cost so much less and the set up was easy and almost instantaneous. So here I am, back at it!
It's a great day for quilting!
