Sewing for Home - My First Lap Quilt
Ink & Spindle - Allsorts Quilt Kit
One of my goals over the weekend was to get some personal sewing done! I am loving sewing for home at the moment and am about to start my first lap quilt.
From Little Things
Inspired by these lovely patterns pictured and the idea to free-style it.... I have started cutting and sewing my Amy Butler - Soul Blossoms fat quarter pack, into a lap quilt. I choose the passion palette and it is BRIGHT!! In hindsight the Bliss would have been more up my alley but I wanted something a little different and out of my comfort zone.

There is a fabulous tutorial on the 'non-pattern' by The Silly BooDilly that Gret followed (above) and so did Mel, From Little Things.. I love her colour and fabric choices don't you! I also love Auntie Cookies cross quilt below.
Ed's note: My mistake, Gret didn't use the 'non-pattern', pattern but made up her own pattern she did however use the organic line tutorial for the quilting part.
