Entitled Silent Christmas this range is more about winter, so would make a lovely additional to any home during the winter months. This small lap quilt will definitely be one you will want to own and snuggle under.
Quick and easy to make, using the feature fabrics to its best advantage, and don’t worry, if you usually work in metric, you can easily adjust this to suit.
Valerie made a cushion with some of the left-overs!
