Currently on my design wall is a lap quilt I am making for my husband. The pattern is from Villa Rose Designs. Most of the batiks are from Cozy Quilts. I spent the last Saturday in May volunteering at the shop and ended up coming home with enough fabric to make this quilt and a really fun Minkee type of fabric for the backing.
My husband is always cold. Six years ago I made him a hand dyed flannel quilt stuffed with batting and a Minkee backing. He has used it so much it is falling to shreds.
This time I thought I would use a better quality fabric in hopes the quilt will last longer. I also decided to skip the batting. The colors were chosen to coordinate with our newly painted and carpeted living room.
Wishing you all a Happy Independence Day!
