This top measures approximately 42" x 58" -- the perfect lap / cuddle size. It came together in about 2 hours, plus the time it took to applique on the letters. It used 4 pink fat quarters + 1.25 yards of white.
I also made a smaller version, which measures approximately 42" x 50". This one uses 3 fat quarters + 1 yard of the background (yellow) fabric and came together in under 90 minutes. (The rectangles are straight on both of these... it's my photography that is crooked!)
Once completed, these will both be donated to a silent auction, which will raise money for my friend Luanne's Susan G Komen 3-Day (60 mile) walk, which is taking place in Washington, DC in October. I'm also hoping to sell the pattern, with 100% of the sale price being donated to her team. Their team's goal is to raise $15,000 in donations prior to the race.
I know everyone comes here for the quilts, but I still want to share the *BEST* finish of the week.... my crossing the finish line of my first ever half marathon!! It was the Disney (World) Princess Half, held last weekend.
Pre-race. I'm in the green skirt. My friend Luanne (mentioned above) is top left (pink shirt).
Here I am crossing that finish line. The second "O" is across my nose.
Post-race with my friend Carolyn, who I run with on the weekends. I may or may not be leaning on her in order to remain upright. (That's a tattoo on my cheek, not a battle wound.)
Linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
