A Box Of Fresh Fun
just love opening a box of fun! My impulsive fabric order was
delivered last week by our trusty UPS man. New material always
inspires me and makes me smile. A rainy Sunday was the only excuse I
needed to design a new lap quilt. I chose bright blue and fresh
green prints from a Ty Pennington jelly roll assortment, adding in a
few remnants of my own.
and Sky is a simple four strip design, sashed with navy.
A solid green border should contrast nicely. This is a quick one to
sew; I already finished piecing the strips. The leftovers will find
their way into a scrappy backing that I'll design later.
may not need this quilt, except maybe to keep cat fur off my
clothes. Take a look at Callie...she's all comfy lying upside
down in my lap after supper. A bit spoiled, isn't she?

life and to relax completely?” – Karen Bradenmeyer
