The quilt seamed a little small, even for a lab quilt, so I still had extra of the fabrics I had used, cut to about 3-5 inches in width and the length of a fat quarter. All these fabrics were each a fat quarter at one time. The boarders added just enough to make it a nice sized lap quilt and not too heavy for her to take with her to treatments.

Sorry these are not the best pictures, I took them with my ipod not my good camera.
Tuesday morning I handed off the quilt to her daughter. Wednesday I heard back that my co-worker LOVED it! Her whole family thought it was such a wonderful idea with saying a prayer and putting a knot in the ties.
On a side note: I have been really enjoying learning my new job but it's hard to squeeze in sewing when my brain has been spinning all afternoon. I hope to try to squeeze in more sewing/blogging as I get into more of a routine at work and at home.
