Day 83 – of 100 Days of Quilts

July 4, 2008

Prairie Lap Quilt

Happy 4th of July!! We hope that all of our American friends will have a great day – and enjoy a day off. Cori and I both forgot to wish everyone a great Canada Day (July 1st) because we were all out with our families. And to my wonderful husband – who never reads my blog – Happy 11th Anniversary! We usually go down to the States for our anniversary, to enjoy the fireworks, but this year, work keeps us in Canada, so I hope the rest of you enjoy the show for us.

Today I picked the simple Prairie Lap quilt that is in our 5th book – The Blessed Home Quilts. I thought I would talk about this quilt today, because I have a funny feeling Cori is making another version of it this weekend. When she was photographing this quilt, she studied the structure of it, and was re-inspired. She popped by yesterday with an armful of modern fabrics, and I know that her mind is spinning with possibilities.
Anyway, this is actually a great teaching quilt. It covers the basics of strip piecing, and half-square triangles, and it is a wonderful beginner project.
See you tomorrow.
