Simply Happy Lap Quilt {Finished!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


This quilt is one of my Quarter 1 Goals for the 2015 Finish Along.  HERE is my original post.

This Simply Happy quilt is finished!  
The quilting is in organic wavy lines, which Mrs.Singer neatly completed after I figured out she can only stitch forward, which is right to left for her.  This quilt was begun in September, quilted in November, quilting ripped and completed in January!  I ripped while listening to A Patriot's History of the United States with my son for US History class.
The backing is a green from the Simply Style line and a large polka dot on dark gray.
I love how the organic wavy quilting shows in this picture.  This is the first time I've used the word "organic" regarding my quilting!  This picture shows a lot of eggplant which overall is not an accurate picture.
This picture shows more of a balance of what's in the quilt but not the mustard - a little of aqua, navy, gray, green, eggplant, rose, and white.
I also made a coordinating pillow sham out of the leftover blocks!  It's a standard-size pillow sham, perfect for a sofa or bed.

What a beautiful quilt.I really like the solid gray in this quilt. I prefer to quilt with prints but have been buying some solids. You have inspired me to pull out my gray. ..........Lisa
