    simply lap quilt in pink

    I was asked to make a lap quilt. I was told to use what I had. Not to go out of my way and get new material. I had these extra 5 x 5 squares so I just sewed them in no order and this what I came up with. I still have to quilt it. Name:  FB_IMG_1422489654855.jpg

    Love the pretty bright colors! It makes me think of spring flowers. Whoever gets the lap quilt is a lucky person.

    Sometimes pretty fabrics just need a simple pattern. Very pretty and cheerful.

    It turned out really pretty in all those nice pinks and the greens look great with them.

    I really like that. Sometimes it is best to just go with it instead of overthinking a pattern. It makes me think of spring flowers poking thru the new green grass.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    Thank you. It was a fast one to do. Now someone wants to buy it have to make it a little bigger.

    All I was trying to do was make sure two of the same prints didn't touch.

    It's such a happy little quilt. Do you know what the name of the fabric is?

    I like it, post again once it is quilted so we can see the design and thread you used.
    I was thinking the bright pink or green would really make it pop.
