I used hand quilted feathers to quilt this happy lap quilt. It is done in aqua blue, batik fabrics and black. I quilted it with blue thread. The backing is the same fabric as the aqua blue in the top. The binding is black to match the black in the quilt. It measures 51 inches wide by 56 inches long. It is all cotton. The batting is polyester. You can see the size of the stitches by looking at the thumb nail with the ruler lying beside the stitching. It will make a great gift for yourself or someone special!
