I started the lap quilt
with that embroidered piece.
Added the first border.
Well, not so much of a border
since it measures some 28cm.
So far so good.
I've already cut the next border,
this time a thin 6cm strip.
I also started a little blue cardie.

As you can see, almost all fabrics
are pretty traditional, but the modern swirls
will give it the necessary twist!
