Strawberry Lemonade Lap Quilt

I've been playing with some charm squares and a jelly roll from the Strawberry Lemonade range to make this simple lap quilt. These fabrics are so bright and cheerful! I made a BIG mistake in one of my blocks but to fix it would have required a LOT of unpicking which drives me insane, so I decided to keep going and hope it isn't too noticeable. Well, it is noticeable (but I tried to hide it in this pic - it is the centre block at the top, one of the middle triangles is the wrong way around). So I'll have to keep this quilt myself. The fabrics made me think of summer picnics so it might become my new picnic rug.

Now that is very pretty fabric, the quilt looks great.

Been there done that! I have those same charm squares I just haven't desided what to do with them.

Lovely quilt - I hate 'reverse sewing' too - I don't think your little mishap detracts from your quilt at all. I read on someone's blog recently that if you can't notice a quilting mistake from a galloping horse it's not worth worrying about. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and have been trying very hard to heed this advice!
