Lap Throw

This is a lap throw that I quilted for Lillian. It was only 44 X 80". Her son's grilfriend had this throw and I think they said it was either her grandmother's or great-grandmother's. Her boyfriend wanted it quilted for her for Christmas and he sneaked it out of the house without her knowing about it to have it quilted. She didn't want any borders or anything added to it. I sure hope she is pleased with it. I don't know if I will hear whether she is pleased or not. It has all kinds of different material in it. It has blue jean, t-shirt knit, sweater knit, cordory and others. I sure took a chance quilting this one. I first started and sewed about 6 inches and had thread breakage. I immediately thought this would be trouble. I didn't like the color of thread so I picked it out and started again. Throughout the quilt I didn't have 3 or 4 breakages which wasn't bad at all. Now I can say I have quilted most different fabrics on this machine.
