This lap quilt and book bag  was made for a friend who retired from teaching.  She is an avid reader.

The quilt is a rag quilt made with cotton fabric and flannel was used for the filler. (Size 40 x 60)  I quilted it after the squares were joined in a diagonal pattern, carefully quilting through the ragged corners. The ragged corners fluffed up after washing.  There is no pattern for the quilt or bag, my friend Donis and I just made it up as we worked. Our friend really loved it.

You and your friend did a great job for making "it up as we worked".  i can see why your other friend loved it.
