Today I completed the top and borders of a lap quilt I've been making for a friend for two years, literally. It is about 45" x 54" unfinished. Next up back and quilting. I'm thinking of just outlining the batik boxes in black thread on the machine. I've not done a lot of machine quilting but that doesn't sound too difficult and I'd like to finish it in the next couple of weeks instead of more years! Other ideas?

It is about 11" by 9.5". It has some contrast problems which serve to hide the cute pattern, but is is about learning. Sew, now I know. My favorite part was the fussy cut fish on the outer border of the block. I stumbled across this fabric scrap hidden in a drawer in the extra bedroom.
About two weeks in, I started doodling on graph paper and because I still had lots of blue scraps left settled on a double pinwheel for my next block. Made 4.
