Treasured - Fast & Fun Lap Quilts

 It's Week 9 of my Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Book Tour and today I am sharing a second version of the Treasured quilt! And this week, it is all about Batiks!!! Can you believe I have never made a quilt completely from basics!!  It has been on my list to do for some time and this was the perfect opportunity to cross it off ;)   And I just love the finish!!! 

For this version of Treasured, I was really trying to show how you can make Batik Fabric Collections just shine.  And the cool thing is . . . there are so many  "Layer Cake" of Batiks, to choose from making all of your prints and colors just match perfectly :)  I already want to make this again in Christmas/Winter collections, I think it would be such a pretty Christmas quilt!!! 

  I choose to use the new Meadow Collection of Expressions Batiks from Riley Blake Designs.  (You know I just love all of those pretty purples!!!) I am so excited that Riley Blake is now making Batiks as I work with them a lot and so I see lot's more Batik quilts in my future ;) And the Pale Pink Batik Background just makes all of those jewel tones just pop!!  And once again, you have to love the scrappy binding in all of the colors, it is just so fun!!!  Treasured finishes at 52 1/2" x 68 1/2" so it is a great size for snuggling up in ;)   

Since I custom quilted all the quilts in the Fast & Fun Lap Quilts  I thought it would be fun to do all over designs for these second versions.   For this Treasured quilt, I quilted an all over curly q's.   It is such a fun design to quilt.  And I got back to using my favorite 402 So Fine for this one ;)  

And that is another Treasured quilt, the ninth and final lap quilt in my new Fast & Fun Lap Quilts book !  You can find the Fast & Fun Lap Quilts book in your local or online quilt shops,  C&T Publishing, or if you would like a personalized signed copy, you can order from my Etsy shop.  And if you make your own Treasured quilt, I would love to see it!!  You can share your quilts with me on social media using hashtag #happyquiltingwithmc and #fastandfunlapquilts and tag me @happyquiltingmc or you can email me a picture at   

Thanks so much for popping in for another Fast & Fun Lap Quilts book day of fun.    And if you haven't had a chance to enter Fat Quarter Shop's Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Giveaway for a Zinnia Layer Cake so you can make your own Treasured quilt just like theirs, be sure and pop on over and enter.  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!
