Moms’ & Saras’ Lap Quilt


This quilt was really fun to make. I can’t remember where I got the pattern but my Mom had asked if I would make some small quilts for the back of her couch and chairs because hair oil was staining the backs. For the chairs I bought some cheaters cloth and hand quilted them but for the couch I wanted something special, so I thought I would try this quilt.

As I was working on it Sara said she really liked it so, as she was soon to enter Penn State I decided to make her the same quilt for her dorm room.

Moms’ quilt is hand quilted in a stipple type design but for Sara’s’ I tied the corners of the blocks with the thought that if she ever wanted me to I could quilt it for her.

Sara has since moved into her own apartment and bought a comforter to match her décor and more mature style, but still uses her quilt for picnics and cuddling.
