Hi Lila,
Go ahead, join our group, you'll find a lot of information on any subject you want. There are so many folks here that do EVERYTHING quilting and ANYTHING quilting.

I learned from a friend that lap quilting is simply doing the hand stitch on a quilt of choice. Another told me that it was using a small frame and quilting, so my advice is to do a search here and on google. I'd bet there as many opinions as there are quilters.

Welcome to the group, we do have a great time sharing information and opinions.

Sharon

Lap quilting usually means quilting individual blocks and then assembling them afterward. Georgia Bonesteel has a few very good books on lap quilting.
