Lap Quilt for Me

This Teresa Kogut fabric caught my eye on ebay, from Homespun Loft who has some lovely fabrics. I felt a fairly simple surround would be most effective, and had some pieces in my stash that matched. I machine quilted this by following the outline squares of the pattern, this made it easy to do as I was able to create random patterns for stitching. The wadding and the red backing fabric were slightly larger than the quilt panel, rather than trim them down I found that by wrapping and folding the backing fabric over the wadding I ended up with a soft slightly padded edge and it's warm and cosy.
