    This is another top that's been unfinished for years. Mainly, because it's a scrap quilt and I had to accumulate enough left over pieces. It's a good lap size especially since I added a border. I don't think I'll be doing another though. I didn't enjoy all the curves :shock: I still have to hand stitch down the binding, so it still looks a little poofy on the binding area because it's only pinned. I FMQ'd some circular doo-dad designs and a simple wave on the border. It will get tossed in the wash to get all shrunk and comfy after the binding is stitched on the back.

    I love that quilt and never seen one like that. Is there a pattern for it some where?

    I made this one up just using a clam shell template. There wasn't a pattern, I just kept on adding to it until I was happy with the size and slapped a border on it:>

    you just sew one next to each other? Is it an unfinished edge then? Like a Bulls eye quilt.
