Lawn Chair Quilt

4.17.2012

My baby sister is getting married this summer so I wanted to whip up a quilt to help them celebrate for a shower gift.

I was eyeing a pattern that was beautiful but would require a whole lot of time as well as precision in the piecing.

Yeah I chose something else.

Otherwise it would be more likely to become quilt to be given to her at a future baby shower.

I used the Lawn Chair pattern from Moda Bake Shop and half of a A Stitch in Color jelly roll.

I love the fun colors and the way it looks like a woven lawn chair. And the fabric.

Swoon.

Oh and how easy it came together.  In a non-precise sort of way.

On the back I added my paper pieced LOVE to make it more wedding-ish.

Now it has a home on their couch.  And all that snuggling underneath since this spring been so…well it looks nice at least.
