Another Christmas gift completed!

It is so nice when I can check off things on our Christmas list.  Whether it be a purchased or handmade item, it seems the list of things to do before we head off for Christmas is long.

We have a family that we've become friends in the last 5 years and I wanted to make them a lap quilt as a Christmas gift. 

Have you ever made a quilt and then once it is pieced, quilted, bound, washed and ready to give as a gift you wish you could make changes to it.  I now wish I had used a different fabric for the inner border that would have really popped.  It looked good together at the store but now I'm not liking it. 

What was I thinking using that inner border fabric.  So many fabrics from the Sunkissed line that I could have used.  Oh well!

I know our friends will like it especially their 4 little girls. I can already see them lined up on the couch snuggling with it.

Quilt Info:
Pattern:  a piece of cake by Camille Roskelley for Thimble Blossoms
Fabric:  Sunkissed by Sweetwater for Moda  (1 layer cake plus, fabric for 2 borders, backing, binding)
Size: 71 x 63
Quilted:  by Stich 'N Quilt in Mableton, GA
Binding:  hand stiched by my mom

Now I'm off to the sewing room to finish some gifts for our girls, family, and friends.
Have a great day!



  1. Very nice. What pattern did you use?

  2. Beautiful quilt, Cindy! I love those colors and I'm pretty sure I haven't found a fabric by Sweetwater that I don't like!

  3. What a gorgeous lap quilt, and a great gift for your friends! :) It does look like it needs to be cuddled with on a couch. :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I just love hearing from you!
