a WIP lap quilt for my MIL. I used a disappearing nine-patch to create the blocks and rotated them randomly. For the nine patch blocks I used charms from two moda Coquette charm packs and a few white Bella Solid charms. Each block contained eight print charms and one white solid in the middle. I decided to use sashing and a border to increase the size of the quilt. Because the horizontal sashing was longer than the WOF I joined them end to end and then cut what I needed. I made my horizontal sashing wider than the vertical sashing. I used white yardage and pink print yardage for that. I had one extra block that I am saving to make a matching pillow. I need to purchase some batting and a print for the back. I will either echo quilt or stitch in the ditch on my machine. I will also fuse either flowers, hearts, or words over the most obvious seams where I joined my horizontal sashing end to end. If the seam allowance disappears when I make my sandwich, I will leave it alone but I want to really customize it for her.

I ended up leaving the applique out and instead, hand quilted inside the borders and sashing. I didn't want it to be too busy. She loved the final product!!
