It was very hot up in the desert in July (who would have ever thought so?) so we spend a lot of time in the camper playing cards and relaxing. Well, we would have been playing cards no matter what the weather was like- that's what our family does- we play cards for money. Not much money, none of us are rich or are big into gambling, normally at the end of the day if you've been having a good day your up 20 cents. That kind of gambling.
Anyways I've been wanting to make her a quilt for her birthday, so that's what I did.
The pattern is a free one from Elizabeth Hartman called New Waves and I made it in the lap size. I made a smaller version earlier this month using boy fabrics, you can see that post here, and the pattern can be found here.

All the fabrics were ones I picked out on a shopping trip at M&L. I started with the red batik four rows down in the quilt and then built all the other fabrics around it. I almost didn't want to give it to her I loved it so much.

I still have a lot of the fabrics left so I'm thinking I might make myself something fun. I could probably make a mini quilt to go in my sewing room, or possibly something for the house like a tablerunner with matching napkins. Oh the possibilities!
