And now for the 1st time anywhere, Loki's On A Whim Quilt!!!!
Pattern: Easy Lap Quilt from Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol
Fabric: On a Whim (Robert Kaufman), a wee bit of Amy Butler Lotus full moon polka dot, Ohio Sky happy dots, and AB45 blue solid (also some brown and green swirly fabric that I have no idea what it is).
Modifications: I changed the overall size to be just big enough to cover the top of a twin bed with no overhang.
It ended up being 45 x 63 1/2.
I even managed to do mitered corners.
For the binding I cut the quilt backing to be 2 inches wider than the overall quilt and then folded it over about a 1/2 inch then folded it again and sewed it down. I think for my next quilt (for Astas) I will make binding, ugh. I think it will just make a nicer looking reverse side.
Why now? What kicked me into high gear and got my lazy bones motivated? Well, two things: My lovely friend Rae and the fact that she linked to me and my unfinished quilt (hangs head). Thank you, thank you Rae (see hers here) And I finally found fabric to make Astas a quilt. I could in no way persuade myself to buy fabric for another quilt when I hadn't finished the first one. I guess it's a good thing I had another baby or Loki may never have seen a finished product.
