Molly’s Lap Duvet

The best kinds of sewing projects are beautiful and quick. I love the simplicity of this quilt. And the best part is – you don’t even really need to know how to quilt. It took the creator (Molly) two and a half hours from start to finish to whip up this incredibly beautiful piece. It makes for a great last minute baby shower gift, house warming gift, first quilting project, or even just an afternoon craft. Another great idea by Molly was to create this same pattern using a flannel fabric; making it cold-weather friendly! Check out the full directions here. She also made a winter friendly wool version seen here.

Moda’s Random Reflections Quilt
