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.
Here is the quilt in my mom’s home!
