Plaid + Warmth = Love
A lap quilt I made this Christmas for my Nana to keep over her knees as she wheels about. Mauve is her favourite colour can you tell? :) Tartan and knotwork applique' interspersed with color wheel blocks in cotton and velvet. Backed in super soft lavender fleece for extra warmth. Machine pieced and quilted. Also, if you saw the Tartan-y Goodness Bag, it IS the same knot. I am practicing it LOL.

P.S. If anyone is keen on a how-to for the machine applique specifically please let me know and I'll put it together! Also, it probably took more like 12 hours because the Color Wheel block is part paper pieced and I finished the binding by hand, but I can't figure out how to make the counter go above 9 hours.
