My fav neighbourhood teen asked for some help with making her boyfriend a lap quilt. Here she is, happy as can be, with her very accomplished piece. She was super careful and calm.
Admittedly she enjoyed the designing the most, but she made French seams on the inside and aligned the plaid perfectly. And she dropped sewing 8! A travesty! ( and the boyfriend loved it).
Here’s a house warming gift ready for my niece, who is just moving into her new apartment. I “bundled” a matching pillow, lap quilt, and a small mixed media piece. I have since discovered that she isn’t partial to the light green, so I might give this quilt away and make her a new one. Gotta find some blue fabric!
