This one is for a dear neighbor, who turns 93 tomorrow. I had put the Wilmington Prints' 10" flannel squares together to showcase the new fabrics in the shop, and then put it away when the fabric bundles sold out. I still had one bolt of the coordinaing fabric, and so that became the back. This quilt is a 45 x 45" square lap robe. It is put together in the same fashion as a "20 minute table runner", with the large size wrapping the smaller to form the contrasting binding. Easy to put together. No batting in the center...
I will add some quilting lines to secure the square shape...

A new year, and one surely to be different than any I have lived so far in my seven completed decades.
Here is the first quilt: one for an expected grand nephew, made with a favorite panel from Wilmington Prints titled TO THE MOON.
I backed it with a Tasha Tudor woodland animal print and bound it with a 2 1/2" binding strip of batik. I had some blender fabric from Wilmington Prints and was able to add add 5" verical borders to the front panel and bring the overall size of the baby quilt to 35" x 45".
I then used my walking foot to add border quilting with my favorite serpentine stitch to frame the panel center of the quilt, and used the same for the binding.
