A couple more lap quilt tops
My primary focus this week is to find a new lawn mowing service so I'm making lots of calls and meeting people. But in between that and making bread I got 2 more of the little lap quilt tops made.
These two will go with the plaid one I shared a few days ago with this stripe fabric for the back. I found out that I have a stack of black-on-white fabrics in the dye studio that I intended to overdye. Now I'm finally doing it and will use them for backs for these child lap quilts or adult wheelchair blankets. These will go in the to-be-quilted closet. that makes 14 tops so far. 4 have been finished and delivered, 4 are being quilted and 6 are in the closet. The next group will be eyeball searing bright.

I just remembered something - I saw this last night on IG and thought of you since you like to make placemats (as do I) it's a simple technique for making a "self binding placemat" : https://www.instagram.com/sadaf.sewing.studio/ - it's the one on the 3rd row on the left. You might already know about this; I thought it was really clever!

Oooh... I love overdyed black and white fabrics. What a great idea for quilt backs.

Those quilt tops are so pretty! I have overdyed B&W fabrics in the past and they are really fun to work with. They take on a whole new look once overdyed.
