    Lap quilt for Mom

    I forgot to post a picture of the lap quilt I made for my mom for christmas. I have been wanting to make her a quilt and she is so cold natured so I made a size she can throw over her in her chair while watching tv or reading. Thanks for looking.

    That is nice and very pretty sure she will love it. I know how she feels about being cold all the time I am the same way, I like my apartment downstairs from daughter kept nice and warm, she can't stand to come down here for more then few mins. at time.. So I feel for you mother I understand how she feels. lol

    It's "Pink Lemonade" by Eleanor Burns in her book "Quilting through the Seasons".

    Yes, it's Pink Lemonade. I loved this pattern. It came out really well and easy to follow. I like yours also. I really liked the size. I did the lap size because I wanted her to be able to use it while sitting and reading. Thanks for posting the pattern.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That is very pretty. I used the same tea cup fabric for a quilt for my MIL.
