Sweet Treats Lap Quilt



This quilt was made for our neighbors' daugher, who was married last September. I thought that the bright colours against this white background with burgundy border, and black binding would be a fine choice to fit in any rom. I bought the fabrics from Craftsy, and followed the directions. It is paper pieced, and I used freezer paper to sew each blade to the other, and then added the black triangle anchor at the bottom. This method is shown on Ann Petersen's Playing with Curves class on Craftsy.com. I finally got the quilt to Natalie and Adam a few months after they were married, but hopefully they will enjoy the benefits of having a lap quilt to keep the drafts off, while reading or watching TV. Natalie is an avid reader, so I hope this keeps her cozy.


        My friend had just bought a new long arm quilting machine, and generously quilted this for me. What a wonder of a machine! I knew how many seams meet at the edge of the black triangles, and with the squares in the borders, so this might have caused some slipped stitches, but this machine managed this quite nicely. Anne-Marie was so calm about figuring out all the intricacies of the long arm quilter computer and the threading and attaching of the quilt to the bed. What patience!
