    Such as it is the Red Hat Lap which is what I've called it although it grew to fit a full size bed top. So two or one large lap can be kept warm. :lol:

    I had fun doing the ribbon. Expanded on the original block design.

    Great! The friendship star variation looks like it would make tiny stars if done as a quilt. Thr red ribbon on top is really eye-catching.

    :lol: :D :D :D :D :D So glad it is done!!!!!!!!!

    The Red Hat “Lap” really? Topped with a ribbon panel. Left to right then down. Attic window with her two “girls”, Grandmothers fan because she is a grandmother, Jump for Joy block because she teaches aerobics, the heart garden block – because she loves to garden, eccentric star (aka formal garden so named by me) – because it’s going to be showplace, snail trail – because where there are gardens there are snails, Iris – she lives in TN and that is the state flower, sister’s choice – I chose all the blocks and designed this ( just wish the quilting had turned out better, L next block is Mississippi where I live, blocks in a box variation – to use as label, cake - for her birthday/because she bakes cakes, “stamp block with her dog daisy (my creation) – the funny about her going to purchase stamps because postage was going up. The center block “Red Hat” from the picture I took of her, my “Baby Sister” a member of the Red Hat Society, which is for 50+ ladies. I truly hope she enjoys this quilt for years to come. This was to be a “lap quilt” but it grew or had a thyroid problem one. LOL

    That's great!
    I belonged to a Pink Hat Society.
    Well, we weren't very active since the person who started it moved away and didn't really get it off the ground.
    I for one, am DEFINITELY going to join Red Hat and wear my PURPLE AND RED!!

    For all of the group that is 'over the pond' - what is a 'Red Hatter??' - I presume it is group of some sort, can someone explain please lol!!

    BEAUTIFUL QUILT - I love the bow and ribbon effect, it really sets it off, great colour choices too!!!

    A "Red Hatter" is a woman over a certain age I believe - about 45 maybe. There are groups of Red Hatters that meet and go out to dinner and do projects. But to be a red hatter - you just have to meet the age qualifications, not necessary to be in any formal group. This is my understanding of it anyway. I was called a Red Hatter once cuz I wore a red and purple felted hat. However, I just love the hat, and don't really want to be called a Red Hatter!

    Red Hat Society is for women over 50.
    Pink Hat Society is for women under 50, but usually for those that are over 40, then they graduate to Red Hat at 50.
    Here's a link for you....
