Dale had me quilt the cutest lap quilt this week. The fabrics were all centered around the brown ground fabric with hot pink and apple green martini drinks. The backing is a hot pink flannel with a strip of light pink flannel (both because we needed a bit more fabric as well as making a nice contrast stripe along one side of the back for interest.) Batting was Warm & White to keep it a fairly thin quilt and Superior Threads So Fine 50 weight polyester thread in the color Marionberry to blend with the brown print and hot pink flannel. All topped off with the Marmalade panto to keep it a bit on the whimsical and light side.
It was fun looking at all of the little drinks while this was quilting. Too bad Mad Men is off the air. Cosmo, anyone?
