Quick and Dirty Lap Quilt

January is peeking just around the corner and the 2011 Quilt Season is fast and furious already in my house! I have my line up of projects that include not only Flowers, but also a few rug mugs, a lap quilt, a Halloween wall quilt and wraps up with lunch kits, a Christmas lap quilt and some Christmas gift projects that I've yet to fully decide on. PHEW. My poor sewing machine better be ready to earn its little corner of real estate in my house!

Up first, the quick and dirty because I like instant gratification!

I received this great charm pack as a prize from one of the contests I entered on Sew Mama Sew. It's from the Moda line Recess. LOVE the fabric patterns, especially the little dots that look like olives. So adorable. Anyway I decided to combine four of the six colorways to create a fall to summer colorway lap quilt that is really just a great fast and furious project. I really love the colors together and once I find a good fabric to border it with I think this will be a good little lap quilt. My daughter really loves the vibrancy of the color which doesn't show much in this photo because of course I took it when it's dark in here, but these fabrics really do "pop". Part of my prize pack was a backer fabric but it's in the red and blue which are the two colors I left out of this little quilt. I think I'm going to back it in a lime green and border it in a fun stripe of some kind with these colors in it. I'll have to hunt around!!

So, what are YOU starting your year off with?!

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and are ready to send this year packing! Eek! It's only two days away!

  1. Can't wait to see how your quilt turns out. I made my first one last week. The pink and brown that we shopped for. Turned out cute. ( = I'll post it soon.
    Thanks for adding my blog button. I'd like to add yours as well... but I'm not sure how to do it without the code.


I love comments and appreciate you taking the time to leave me one! Have a wonderful day! xox
