    Spring fabric Lap Quilt

    I made this with scraps from a few jelly rolls and added the white to make it light and happy. I used some cotton fabric that was given to me and I really couldn't think of any other use for it, so to the back it went! I also had quite a few yards of a pale lime green french terry cloth with no use, so I checked and it didn't show through.....batting! This was a new experience for me trying to follow lines while fmq....wow...I think it's harder than just doing my own thing. I found a freebie download of a panto and made my own template, using a washable marker. Don't look too close at the quilting ....lots of squiggles and oops, but it was practice for doing a bigger quilt for DD. Thanks for looking. Rose

    Cute quilt and I love your quilting. If we can't have spring weather, we can still make spring quilts.

    The white really does set off the other spring colors beautifully. Having never MQ anything yet, I think yours is terrific!
