I bought 4 remnants, 2 fat quarters and found one more previously purchased remnant in my stash. The batting was a polyester batt that had been given to our town quilting club. The backing came from the $5.00/meter shelf.
The finished quilt is soft and fluffy, good for an "angel quilt," the quilts that are collected by our local fabric store and given to needy locals in the Christmas season. Although it's not strongly feminine it is a quilt for a woman or girl.
It was nice to make a quilt with all new material for a change. So many of the quilts the past year have been scrap quilts from the stash, and although I really like scrap quilts, it was a treat to buy some new material and create from scratch.
Because the batt was donated and the top and back were not full price materials, this lap quilt cost only $46.80 to make. For an all new material quilt, that might be a record!
Get a load of the old machine!
