This is in my lap tonight - stitching down green hexies! HopeFULLY, I'll finish this quilt top tomorrow... I do love it, but I'm ready to move on. I think I'll hand quilt it with perle cotton though, so it will be in my lap for a bit longer. :)
I need to take a few hours to clean up my sewing room soon - what a mess I've made. And you should see the floor!
Look what I found today! An old cigar box! It was in my closet in a bag of stuff my mother gave me last year when she moved to Augusta.
It was full of small family treasures like this. It seems to be a badge, maybe from a war? Does anyone know what this is???? There were also some old buttons with a similar crown and eagle insignia on them.
I may turn the box into a sewing box - but I'll have to find a new spot for the treasures though.
So to answer my own question yesterday: I like to make lap quilts the best! They are just the right size to me. I can finish them rather quickly. And with two dogs who like to be in our laps under a quilt, lap quilts are perfect for us. And they also look good folded at the end of a bed.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
