This is the third lap quilt that I made. I used a package of 2 1/2 strips that I bought from the Santa Rosa Quilt show. Up close, the fabric looks like suede, but it is not as good a quality as the Cherrywood. I challenged myself to use all the strips in the packet. It was fun to make. First I matched two colors and made 4 patches. Then I put them up on the design wall and made the pattern I thought looked the best. Then I sewed them together. It is quilted in the ditch on both the horizontal and vertical seams.
