picnic quilt top



I finished piecing the top of my picnic quilt inspired by Leslie's.
It is all made from vintage sheets and the squares are 5 1/2" finished.
There are a total of 130 squares and it is about 4 1/2 x 6.
I hope to finish this by Memorial Day. I'm not sure yet how I will quilt it.
More photos on my flickr here and here
Were any of these designs on your bed growing up? There is one square from my yellow roses pillowcase. I could only cut into it because I have another.

That is really neat! A great idea!!

I have the sheets with the yellow, orange, and white flowers on them!! I used to have the one with the white daisies on the pink background.

absolutely perfect in every way!!! Makes me love little squares even more than I already did. Funny thing is that I see some that are on my daughter's bed.

Beautiful!
