Can't go sleigh riding without a warm lap quilt! This is the perfect oneit's nice and long but not too wide. It's warm but not bulky. It is fashionable with chevron stripes. Best of all, it is so easy to make you will have time to bake the cookies to go with it :) The applique chevron stripes are sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. It is designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, unaffected look to the quilt. The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. There is no binding; the edges are finished by sewing all around and then clipping the edges to fray.
Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.
