I spent most of the day in my sewing room, cutting and sewing and thought I had built all the "pieces" to make the below quilt, but it turns out the directions had a slight detour I was supposed to ignore, but I took the detour and messed up the little 4-square blocks. Oh well, I've already cut new pieces for the second batch.
I'm making a triple-wide lap quilt (basically half a twin size quilt) for the couch in the family room. It's long enough to reach the length of the couch and cover our laps.
I'm primarily using scraps I cut a decade ago for patchwork square dance skirts, and I'm using a nice yellow for the light colored portions. And, since I made this graphic, I've decided to change up the border and use a jewel-tone green for the border. I'll probably mostly get the blocks built tomorrow.
