After much planning and thinking, and some doing, I finished my sister's Christmas present. It is a lap quilt for her living room, in which her colors are bright blue, grey, white and black. Normally my mom helps me out with my quilting projects, but I'm now a quilting big girl and did it all by myself. The results on the back aren't great, A LOT of puckering, but the top turned out good. And its soft and cozy and will be perfect so long as she doesn't display it bottom side up. And since I love all of you, I will show you the back despite my utter hate for it.
Here it is on my bed. I used 5 different fabrics and did long strips in varying sizes. The final measurements ended to be about 57"x42".
A better view of the fabrics I used.
Here is the stitch I used for the machine quilting and my horrible puckered up back. I used flannel for the back.
All folded up and ready to be wrapped!
It does look quite good on my bed. ^_^
Thanks for looking!
