So my little quilt that grew was going to be a lap robe for the holiday season. Except that it grew and now graces my bed as a spread for the holiday season. Leaving me without a lap robe for the couch.
So I totally have to machine quilt a gift that is long over due and must be ready to catch a ride to its destination next week. And I am completely out of practice for FMQ. It is almost like starting over and the gift quilt is too important to screw up.
So, I found this Santa fabric I loved on sale at Hobby Lobby. The only flannel that matched was brown. but the pine cone fabric with the gold bling matched them both. Thus a practice whole cloth quilt to make a lap robe for couch for the holidays. Yay!
And to make it even
The Details... This is a whole cloth quilt approximately 54 x 40 inches. It is quilters cotton for the top and binding and flannel for the back. It is machine quilted and has a polyester batting.
The Story... My husband's Great Aunt Virginia was a free spirit and a very independent lady. Well in to her 80's she traveled with the Good Sam's or some such travel trailer group. Her 'trailer' was a seventies conversion van. Tricked out in leopard print. I can't see leopard print without thinking of her. Thus, the running title for this quilt has been Yes Virginia, Santa is Wearing Leopard This Year.
