Quilt Diva lap quilt


Have just this morning finished this lap quilt for myself - machine pieced and quilted, using a charm pack of Moda Fabrics' 'Quilt Diva' designs by Amy Bradley - made up my own pattern and used some yardage of other fabrics for the borders and binding. I just wanted something bright and colourful that will add a little extra warmth in winter when I am sitting on the sofa stitching and/or watching tv.


The large squares in the centre have been quilted on the diagonal except for the button fabrics, which have 3 circles quilted on them, and the wonky squares fabrics have a large wonky square quilted on each one.

The triangles are quilted in the ditch and the smaller squares are quilted on a diagonal - I used a variegated thread for all the quilting.  The backing is nice warm flannel.
