   So my best friend StephanieGravatt loves polka dots. So, I had an idea about six months ago that I would make her a polka dot quilt. So I've been stashing polka dot fabric for a while. Well, a few weeks ago, she told me that some Christmas plans with some of her family got cancelled, and she was bummed about it. So, I had the wonderful idea to try and crank out a quilt for her in time for Christmas. And I got it done in time! Woo hoo! The quilt measures about 5'x5', and has a dark red fabric for the backing. I used 4.5" blocks, so that after the seam allowance, they would be an even 4". I originally intended for it to be rectangular, but I'm terrible at math, so it came out square. But she loves it just the same. So, here's a picture that she took of it. (I forgot to take a picture before I wrapped it).

This is cute. I'm kinda in love with lap quilts. If I had more room I'd make more of them.
