Ready for someone’s lap
Setting together pieces left from another larger project always appeals to my sense of frugality and provides an intellectual and artistic challenge.
This little lapquilt–a good size for a three year old was made from some rectangles left from a primary color quilt challenge, and the backing pieced from some of my favorite fabrics–too small to use as a single entity but too lovely in their entirety to cut into tiny pieces. I also used a quilting pattern of zoo animals.
Here it is hanging from the front porch of the shop—my long-arm resides here along with the bees, my garden, and the Meyer’s Lemon tree.
