I made this lap quilt for a friend of mine from China. She's a student at our local college. She was going home for the summer and I wanted to give her something. I was going to do the "Warm Wishes" pattern but decided to just use the striped material. I got this "bright idea" about 2 weeks before she was to go home. haha Anyway, I got it done and did SID on my machine. To brighten up the edge, I sewed strips of the rainbow fabric together.
I used the fabric with the cats because Victoria loves my mom' s cats...Boo and Tiger. She loves the colors of the rainbow and she likes to work jigsaw puzzles when she stays with my mom and dad. I found the red print fabric with the English alphabet and thought it would be neat to use it because she is learning our language. She will be coming back in a few weeks to attend college again.
