A Tropical Quilt

I made this easy lap quilt with a tropical theme.  It is made of 5 inch squares and backed with a sparkly gold fabric (to mimic sand). I tend to stay pretty basic with the quilting pattern – using perpendicular straight lines. I like to focus on the fabric rather than the quilting design. I’m sure as I get more experience, I’ll find that different quilting techniques can highlight the fabric.


Below is the work in progress as I get ready to quilt the pieces together.2017-08-28 19.00.16
