Despite the heat, I felt inspired yesterday. I started putting together a lap quilt for a little friend who will be celebrating her second birthday in August.
For the quilt top I am using a variety of up-cycled cottons and linens plus some cotton scraps salvaged from past projects. I’ve cut equal amounts of 6x6 squares and 3x6 rectangles and I plan to piece the fabrics randomly in a 1:1 linear pattern, with the pattern reversing on each line. Does this make any sense?
For the backing I am using a sweet puppy print flannel (because she loves doggies). I plan to quilt the patchwork top directly to the flannel back (sans batting) for a lighter overall blanket.
Perfect for snuggling with Mom for a story after a hot and humid summer day!
I promise I’ll post pictures when the project reaches a more photogenic stage.
