This quilt was a fast finish which I made for Quilts for Kids SLC. I found out that quilts for teenagers aren't donated as often. So when I went to the scrap quilt workshop I asked what size would be good for teenagers. They said lap quilts would be good because they are supposed to be comfort quilts and not bed quilts. I love making lap quilts.
I used my chunky race quilt calculations and fabrics from my mother to make this quilt. It takes 30 four inch width of fabric strips. I cut each WOF strip in half at the fold and cut off the selvages. Three 21 inch strips are for one row. Eleven and a half 21 inch strips are for four rows. Forty-five and a half 21 inch strips are for 16 rows. Each section is pieced like a jelly roll race and trimmed to the same width.
I pieced the quilt top in the morning.
I quilted it in the afternoon before dinner.
And I did the binding after the kids were in bed.
I hope to get some better pictures before I wash it and donate it. But it has been so cold and my kids have been sick off and on for the last month. Check out the view from my back yard the day I finished this quilt.
Cold. That's all I can say.
