Tutorial Review: Lap Quilt/Duvet

I finally used my gorgeous Lotta Jansdotter fabric on the weekend to make a quick lap quilt.  I saw these beautiful lap duvet's on The Purl Bee and was immediately inspired to make one.  I made a few modifications, one being the size as I only had one yard of each print, so my quilt is smaller.  The other change was I decided to quilt lines down the whole length of my fabric and not just bar tack every seven inches as suggested.  The bar tacking didn't look any good on the thinner batting I used. 

The yellow and grey material is the Choma Golden Rod fabric from the echo collection and on the back is I used Little Florine Urban Sunrise.

I just loved this quick and easy tutorial, great for beginners - it would make such a divine baby gift with all the beautiful fabric out there.  The quilt goes beautifully in my room with my favourite Sugarloop prints.  My number one girl is finally back to pre-school this week :-)  Longest holidays ever!!!!

Thanks Yana! I love it too - it was also a bargain at Bed Bath and Table I think!
