Lap & Throw Quilts

I’ve been clearing space in my studio by finishing some lap and throw quilts that have been hanging around awaiting completion.
This one I pieced from my scraps using fabrics in cream, brown, green and red.
It’s backed with even more scraps in coordinating colors.
My friend created this quilt top and brought it to show and tell saying it was her first modern quilt top. I offered to take it home and quilt it.
With all the purple fabrics, I decided to quilt it with purple thread. I used mostly straight lines but added a bit of free motion stitching to add some love.
I found this red and purple striped fabric for the backing and binding. I’ve never used prairie points in a quilt before so I was bit befuddled as to how to quilt them. I opted to just quilt around them (no stitching on them). They wrinkle a bit after being washed, but it is a fun tactile piece of the quilt that those little triangles can be moved.

  1. Such a lovely throw! I can see glimpses of your art quikt style peeping through. Super loose hearts for your friends quilt. I’ll bet she’s thrilled!
