I've fallen in love with these ruffled lap quilts and planned to make one. Having just moved and my sewing machine still not put together, I knew it would be forever before I ever got to it. This one got such glowing reviews, I said "ok, why not"! So glad I ordered it, it's just lovely, well made, a good weight, and with all the colors in the ruffles, will blend in with all my other things vs. a patterned quilt. It's still warm in AL, but fall is just around the corner and I look forward to snuggling in it in the evenings in front of the tv.
