What ever happened to lap quilts?

Finished quilting the ex-large applique quilt.
Lighting was not good today, so I will try to take pictures tomorrow.
Working on another customer quilt.
My camera battery is exhausted (at least that's what it says)
and will not charge.  I took these pictures with
my phone, so they are not the best.
This quilt is 96X96. 
Glide thread and 2 layers of batting. 
Three big quilts in a row is making me tired.
I am on vacation this week, so I am hoping to get lot of
quilts finished.

Kind of "bright" for my taste but still a pretty quilt.
Love all the open spaces.
This was last weeks peek. Sorry for the really bad picture
and everything in the background.  Remember phone camera.
Lots of texture.
It is a Laundry Basket Quilts pattern.
I only made the top part so it can be used as a door topper or
table runner.
I made this for my best friend and sister for her birthday.
I love how it finished, so I have started one for myself.
I don't remember the size but I used So Fine thread
2 layers of batting, 80/20 on bottom and Tuscany wool on top.
A lot of McTavishing.
Thanks for visiting, going back to finish more quilting.


  1. Beautiful quilting!
    I hope you can find a replacement battery soon because I just love seeing all the details!

  2. more wonderful quilting and the applique is lovely on the runner, I have plans for a runner for my table as they look so nice but think it will not have applique on as I need to learn how to do that first

  3. Gorgeous quilting, as always, Diane!! Love love love that runner!
