I can't believe that this is your first!  Love your color choices.  Nice work!
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Merry Christmas Lap Quilt on: August 23, 2011 07:14:56 PM
I am so pleased with my latest quilt.  It is a small 40x45 lap quilt.  This is the first time I have ever free motion quilted (around the letters in Merry Christmas) and appliqued (also all the letters).  I am in love with both now Smiley  I did a simple stitch in the ditch for the big borders.  The colors are a bit off in the first 2 pictures as the red is more like the color in the last picture.

The back is equally as cute!  I scored this Moda Ice Skating Elves for $3.99 a yd!

And I just love the binding with the backing...

Thanks for looking  Grin

Very cute!  I never realized there was that much Seuss material available.
Yes!  I have already bought enough Grinch fabric to make another quilt this size.  I love Dr. Seuss and think it makes for great quilting fabric.  I was told by my local quilt shop that they are coming out with The Lorax fabric next Smiley  You can go here http://www.robertkaufman.com/fabrics/designers/dr_seuss_enterprises/ to see the whole line.

OMG i saw this technique done at a Craft Show I was a vendor for.  Where did you find inexpensive tape measures? Thanks for showing your creation. 
Found this one for only a dollar at my local Dollar Tree store  Smiley Plenty more on the tape measure too!

Thanks for the comments everyone, I agree fiddlegirl8, I like them better than zipper pouches too.

My little brother (in law) is going off to college and I wanted to make him something to remember me by.  So I whipped this up for him.  The pattern is called Snap Happy! by Stitchin' Sisters.  Super easy instructions and a fun, fast project!  It snaps closed thanks to 2 pieces of measuring tape in the top hem!  Too cool!

Here is a great picture of the quilt top right after I pieced it...


Here is the top and bottom completed!




Here are 2 close ups of the binding I attached by hand (first time ever)

How did you do your binding?
Looks awesome!  What did you use for the edging? and also I was wondering if you cut out the blocks as 9x9 exactly and then lost a little when you sewed or did you make them like 10x10 at first?  I cant wait to try something similar!

For the binding/edging I did a "cheat" method where you cut the back about 2 inches bigger all around and then fold it over onto the top.  I fold it in half so the raw edge is hidden, then fold it over onto the quilt and stitch away Smiley

As for the block size, I cut each block out with a 9.5x9.5 ruler so I had 1/4 inch seam allowance on each side.  Each block is a finished 9 inch block.

Thank you so much for your comments and questions!!! Grin
