Lap Quilt

What are you most proud of? Well... first the whole thing but now I'm proud of the fact that even though there was the briefest moment of discouragement over ever doing something nice for anyone again {without being asked to do it} it has passed and I will not let the intended recipient's reaction discourage me from trying to be nice to other people.

Auntie Irene asked:
Lovely and interesting placement of colors. I really like it. Thanks for sharing.
gmhnQuilts answered:
It's supposed to be "oudoorsy" LOL. At least that is what I was trying to go for.
NanaJeanFL asked:
How very thoughtful Penny. You've inspired me. Perhaps I can make some of these for the injured returning from overseas.... And BTW, is that the disappearing four patch pattern?
gmhnQuilts answered:
Um.... I have no idea!!! It is from "Modern Designs for Classic Quilts"... a soft cover book... here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Modern-Designs-Classic-Quilts-Traditionally/dp/1440229686 I don't even know what a disappearing 9-patch is so I couldn't tell you if this was a disappearing anything. LOL. It's just a four patch cut on each side of the center seams... then swapping the center pieces around.
K Lee 2Strings asked:
How very sweet and thoughtful of you. I'm sure that your warming and warm hearted gift is very much appreciated. The layout has given a wonderful sunshine and shadows effect to the quilt. Nice work!
gmhnQuilts answered:
Thank you!
desna asked:
This is a lovely quilt and a very thoughtful gift. Btw it is a disappearing 4 patch it is fun to do and you can also cut them on the point instead of square and making triangle shapes making for a totally different pattern block, I made a little pincushion with it.
