Will They Make It ???

I have made and finished 3 of these lap tops using Moda's figgy pudding line; each one has had a different color way. My darling daughter (DD) requested I make the first one for a wedding gift: she wanted something special. She had received a quilt from a family friend when she got married which she loves. She knows and respects the love and time involved with quilting. When she saw the first one ( sorry, no picture)she wanted one for herself and then we decided this would be a nice gift we could make/give to my oldest sons girl friend. Well, the idea was good but finding the fabric locally was a challenge. I live in Iowa she lives in North Dakota. I did some calling and made a short trip to get my hands on more of the "figgy pudding." Super simple pattern "Serendipity" was used and a friend of mine quilted them with snow flakes (thanks for meeting my deadlines!). I did use the peppermint twist on the back of all of them; just too cute!!! Click on the pictures to see the details. I just finished the last of the binding this morning and they are in the mail...


  1. Oh fun!! I am so excited to get to see them! What a difference the binding color makes on these. The blue binding makes the blue pop and the green does the same on the green one- I have a tough decision ahead of me. I was first attracted to the green one for some reason, but I will just have to see. Thanks Mom!

  2. The quilts are beautiful! A simple pattern, but great use of the Figgy Pudding fabric.
