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.
