Since I had some leftover black and white fabrics from my New York Beauty

and I saw a sample lap quilt at the Maine Quilt Show that used black and white fabrics, I decided to make one for myself.

Lap quilt "coin" stripsThe gold strips are not part of the new quilt, that’s just the bedspread underneath.

Unfortunately, the bright lime green/yellow batik I bought for the connecting strips is not long enough, even though I bought the amount indicated on the pattern.  The “coin” strips are 56″ long and my fabric is only 42″.  UGH!  So now I’m looking for another fabric I like that doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg.

What the heck happened to the price of fabric, anyway?

Thanks for stopping by…
