picnic quilt done!
The picnic quilt was finished for Memorial Day. I set a goal and did what I said.
I went with the simple stitch in the ditch for quilting it which worked out perfectly since the squares were small enough to work with this method.
I used pink and yellow seam binding because I wanted a solid since there is so much pattern going on already and backed it with a yellow sheet.
It was used for the first time today when we walked down to the park for the duck races. It is sort of funny to see a crowd of people cheering on a bunch of bath toys.
This quilt is incredibly soft since the fabric used for the top has already been washed a lot. It reminds me of my childhood and reading books in bed on hot summer nights and the way light sparkles off a lake. All those bright flowers are sort of glowing. It's a happy quilt.
