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:

straight on look here

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

Had to use angle to get it all

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
