Star Lap Quilt

I can finally post one of my Christmas presents to my mother-in-law! I made this star lap quilt using six of crazymomquilts tutorials. I then added a square border around in Amy Butler fabrics-this idea was inspired by Jacquie's quilt. Although it is hard to see in the photo, I made my first pieced binding which I love! It took a while to do, but I am very happy with the end result.

I then pieced together the back to showcase a few of the fabrics and give the backing a little something extra-or since I am currently down South we can consider it lagniappe. I love pieced backs and I really like that when it is in use the top can be folded down to see a little of the fabric strip on the back.

It's gorgeous! The pieced binding does give it a little extra touch and I really love the back. I would say this lap quilt is reversible! What a wonderful gift. Lucky MIL!
