Another Lap Quilt

Remember when I was working on this http://sewingsandy.blogspot.com/2011/06/my-latest-quilt-in-progess.html?  Well, now it looks like this!

I love how it turned out.  This was my first real attempt quilting with pearl cotton.  It was kind of hard to sew with.  But I love the results!

I used different colors for the different color blocks.  After I quilted around each block with the pearl cotton, I used regular quilting thread to hand quilt through the solid squares.  It turned out really nice.  The quilting went pretty quickly.

It's the perfect size to snuggle under.  Now, if I can just keep my daughters from trying to claim it! :)

You're quilt is beautiful! I love the stitching with the pearl cotton. I really like the color of your backing fabric too.

Very pretty. And I love the bright colors in the solid squares. Hand quilting is something I really want to try someday.
