I really need to get a better camera. Or maybe learn to use the one I have. I see such amazing pictures on other blogs that really show the detail of the quilts and my pictures look so...blah. The colors never seem to look right and you can hardly see the patterns of the fabric.
So this quilt top is one I made last week. When I was supposed to be cleaning for Thanksgiving. I used a scrap pack I bought from Sisters and some muslin from my stash. It measures about 45 in. square.

A year later but I think I'm back!
I have been working up a storm in my craft room. I had decided in July that I wanted to make each of my nieces and nephews a lap quilt for Christmas. Here it is almost Thanksgiving and I have two out of twelve finished. So I think I am going to change my goal to giving a lap quilt to each of them as a birthday gift in 2009. That way they will be spread out a little more and there won't be such a scary date looming on my calendar!
The picture above is the center of what will be Ryan's lap quilt. I found the pattern in the Winter edition of Easy Quilts. The pattern name is Checkerboard Twist. It is labeled as being fat quarter friendly but I just used the charm pack Dinosaur Uproar.
