    I've been making "lap robes" that are more like little quilts than to just cover a lap. So, I've started calling them "personal quilts' One person quilts to cover up with when napping in a recliner or whatever.

    This one is for a gal who had a terrible sinus infection that went to her brain. She's recovering and in rehab now.

    The print was inherited as perfectly cut 7" squares. I added the black and turquoise to the 'turning 20" block. It has pale pink, pale peach and pale lilac and there was no way I was going to be able to match any of those colors. So I took the two colors that I could match.

    I've still got about 6 sets of the pre-cut squares. One would have won the ugly contest, lol. There are about 50 squares per set and I use 35 for the personal quilts,
