    Do you ever have one of those days you just need to sew something easy? I had a couple yards of this kona clover with nothing to use it for .. reminds me of St. Patricks day .. anyway these squares are from some out of print favorites of mine and other random prints I like. I am going to make the backing from prints and solids too - it will be a double sided lap quilt.

    This is wonderful. Yes, there are days it is great just to sew and have this lovely type of quilt come out of it. Nice job. Thank you for sharing.

    I think you did a wonderful job on the quilt. I don't feel it to look plain at all. All the different colors makes it come alive.

    Looks great! Now all that "favorite" fabric isn't hidden away.

    I love your quilt. It is my favourite colour too and all the prints just seem to want to play together. Will look great when it's quilted

    I think sometimes you just need to sit down....and work on something easy.....it clears the brain and you just feel so good....and the quilt top turned out very good too! I love that shade of green.

    I love green and simple! Most of my days I need something simple to sew. Too many times I've tried sewing a little here and a little there only to find that I didn't sew the same way each time and nothing fit.

    Scrap quilts are my favorite. This would be a good pattern for the lap quilts I make for hospice patients. Simple to sew, but dramatic.
