Knitted lap quilt
Last night I put the finishing touches to the lined knitted squares lap quilt I hastily sewed together over the past couple of days. Our eldest daughter is absolutely freezing up in her Uni house (even with the heating on) and so the squares we had knitted with the intention of turning into a bed throw, hastily got sewn together for a winter warmer instead. OK, the initial squares are smaller than the later ones - mainly as I'd put the bag away and when I felt in a knitting mood before Christmas, just sized it from - bad - memory, but it is warm and it's not as though it's being entered for a show. I lined it with some leftover quilt batting, and then backed it with some more of the flanelette sheeting I had left over from backing the heavy curtain for the front door (that stuff really is earning its keep).
Now - another dish cloth to start on today, and casting on for a knitted hat for my son, plus some more piecing on the two quilts I'm working on.
I used some pretty buttons to tie the layers together.
