My daughter had moved to a bigger apartment a while back. And for that she needed furniture as she had increased her space a great deal from a studio with a kind of small bedroom to a 2 bedroom space. Wonderful wood floors and lots of room for an office as well. She purchased a new couch and with her new decor, I offered to make her a new lap quilt.
I finally made it and finished the top on my retreat in early March. And now, I got it back from the longarm quilter. It is a very modern design found in an issue from last year's American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. The fabrics were a collection from Connecting Threads. The inside border was a golden tone of the same line and the background was also a light version of the same line; the print is a very light version. ( You really can't see it in the photos. )
She and I selected a minky/Shannon cuddle fabric for the back which makes it so soft and accentuates the swirly quilting designs.
I then decided to make a single fold binding of the scrumptious fabric and attach it by machine.
And now it is DONE!
Quilting design on the front; the thread color was done in a light gray.
