I can't begin to thank you all so much for giving me confidence to quilt this lap throw for my DD's birthday! I was so worried about actually quilting it. It's not fancy-schmancy quilting, but after doing the wiggly diagonals in one direction, I decided I liked it the way it was. I also quilted in the borders. The most important part was that my DD loved it! Thanks again for all the wonderful members on this QB!

Your back looks good enough to be a front, so you came out a winner twice :thumbup:

Awwww....thank you! It's a panel from Lakeside Resort collection from Moda. I like using panels for the backs of quilts. Some of the fabrics are from that same collection from my LQS.

It looks wonderful! I absolutely love that way of quilting. It doesn't have to be perfect, and it works great. Great job! :thumbup:
