Yeah, I know. I did manage to get some sewing done in here, believe it or not! (Shay, are you impressed?)
The binding is a polka dot. I love a red binding! The brown print is the last of the Katie Jump Rope fabric I was hoarding.
|"Picnic", designed by Kim Brackett, Scrap Basket Sensations book.|
The goal was to have green the primary color, then red, then gold, but in the end the mix grew more varied and I love all its scrappy goodness.
Here you can see the great texture that Mary of Quilt Hollow gave to the quilt.
Love the swirls and ginkgo leaves.
See the two sizes of ginkgo leaves? The best birthday gift I gave myself last month was sending the quilt to Mary for "frosting", as she calls it. Yum! I have to give credit to my sister Kathy for pushing me to make this quilt top a priority. This Picnic is complete and I'm happy to say it is staying with me. It feels great to have another finish.
