Last year, I gave my MIL a flannel pillow, since she likes to read in bed. Decided to give her a coordinating flannel lap quilt for Christmas. Hand-tied the center (excessively), which helped hide badly aligned squares. Machine quilted the rest of it.
Finished just before I wrapped it. It was cold at SIL's house, so MIL quikly put it to use.
MIL with lap quilt, FIL looking jealous?
