    Some of you may have read my previous post about how I was making a quilted pillow for my DH grandmother's birthday. The pillow that turned into a wall hanging and now is a lap quilt.... I guess I just didnt know when to stop! Her party was last Sunday so I gave her the top and told her it was a work in progress....

    So here it is >>>

    Upclose of center block....love the lighouse material!

    Not quite done yet... Top and bottom borders are the red with a lighthouse block in each of the 4 corners.

    Very cute. Why stop when you were on a roll. Now they can think of you as they wrap up in this cozy quilt.
