As I was reading my Bible yesterday, I noticed that I had gotten into the habit of grabbing a throw pillow to put on my lap while I read my Bible. I’m not sure what it is – when I read, I prefer whatever my reading material is to be closer to my face than just lying flat on my lap. Since my rocking chair where I have my quiet time isn’t next to the couch any more (it’s in Stephen’s study now), I found myself without a pillow.
I’ve been wanting to start a new quilt lately, so I went online and looked up quilt block patterns. Wow – are there ever a lot! I found one I liked, and decided to make two blocks to sew into a lap pillow. For the fabric, I used the blocks that I had left over from my first Trip Around the World quilt.
The block is called Starflower. I was suprised at how easy it was to piece. I had so much fun, that I decided to take the remaining blocks, and make them into a lap quilt to match the pillow. I don’t have enough of the blues to make an entire quilt (I think I have enough for 3 more blocks exactly like the one on the pillow), so I think I’m going to make a few different colors and make them into a more colorful quilt. I haven’t found a fabric store yet (that’s probably a good thing, lol), so it’d be nice if I can just use the fabric I already have on hand. And since these blocks are already cut out – hey – you don’t get much better than that!
