Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Rotary cutting

Pattern Description:

A contemporary design perfect for showcasing your favourite prints! Using a charm pack with coordinating solid background and block border fabric is a cost effective way to start quilting. With no seams to match this is a forgiving pattern that will give you a taste of how satisfying it is to create a quilt.

The name of the pattern - "On Nanny's Lap" - came from the first quilt I made with this pattern. It was a special gift for my mother, who is "Nanny" to her grandchildren, all of whom love to snuggle On Nanny's Lap.

  • Lap size 53" x 63"


  • 1 Charm Pack (or 42 5" squares)
