15 years later...

LONG AGO in the days of my teenage hood in Vermont, my mom started this quilt, which I loved. It was originally for her bed, but it never got finished because like someone who took after her, she never finished anything for herself! Well, 15 years later I inherited the unfinished blocks, and one day whipped up this little lap quilt. Yay! It feels so good to give it life after years and years in a box:) Also it's comfy! I took a risk and used polar fleece on the back. Call me lazy or cheap, but it's nice and warm, and didn't need batting.
Why is this on my cooking blog you say? Cause I'm slowly taking over with quilts. Just watch.

I was about say..."um, Sarah, you posted this on the wrong blog..." but I guess you didn't. My bad. I wish I were crafty and less lazy.
