Quick & Easy Lap Quilt

Last Sunday I had the pleasure of going along to the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild's Sew Day.

Other on the Western Suburbs it was a delightful afternoon filled with plenty of sewing, laughing and of course admiring other people's handiwork. I took along two charm packs of Kate Spain's Horizons to put together a quick and easy lap quilt that I could whip up in no time on my sewing machine.

I love the Kate Spain Horizons collection as it is so colourful filled with lots of blues,purples and greens in different shades and patterns.

The beauty of pre cuts is that you can delve straight into sewing them up after deciding your lay out. I did 12 rows of 7 squares with a cream flower patterned backing with similar white binding.

Quilt all finished! Just mind the feet photo bombing the frame!

I am extremely lucky the other half of Quilt Modern (aka Liz/Mum) has a quilting frame that can punch out a pretty nifty stipple. It really gives the quilt the finishing touch that looks just right! With these amazing colours the white stitching on top was amazing.

Unfortunately Kate Spain Horizons range is pretty much sold out however you can head over to the Quilt Modern website to see what other great charm packs are available. Until 8th May we are offering 10% your total order!

Happy quilting!
