Ta Da!!! - Ginger Blossom Lap Quilt

After I had finished the Ginger Blossom baby quilt, I still had half a pack of fat quarters to use, this time from the green colourway. I needed a quick and easy Christmas present, so I whipped up another disappearing 9-patch and backed it with a lovely soft pale green minky fleece.

The designs in this colourway are much busier than those in the pink colourway, so I kept all the sashing, the outer border and the binding in the same chocolate brown so it didn't become overwhelming. I didn't end up quilting it because the minky fleece looked much nicer when it didn't have any other sewing on it. Luckily the fleece fabric sticks to the quilt top so it won't be shifting around too much.

In all, even though I thought that I would love the pink quilt more, I really did like this one when it was finished. And even though it does have flowers on it, it isn't too girly. Luckily I have another Ginger Blossom fat quarter pack set aside for myself! :)
