    My weekend top (AKA, not babysitting!)

    I really don't have much experience putting tops together, aside from the parrot quilts that I make that are extremely time consuming as each of the 42 squares have many itsy bitsy tiny pieces. So when I found this board, I wanted to learn to do other things, different patterns...
    I learned how to sew at a very young age, Dad worked for Singer, so I got free lessons, but never really did anything other than making the girls some dresses when they were small. Name:  lisa.jpg

    I made this for my sister's 50th birthday this week-end. Provided this "matches" her living room (I'll know today) I will piece a back using some sort of print & plain blocks so that we can have people at the party sign it with a fabric marker. It is an over sized lappie as she is almost 6' tall.

    Love the pattern and fabrics. What is the name of the pattern or did you design your own?
