Picnic Quilt is Quilted

 Finally, I've finished quilting my Picnic Quilt!
 I added a white border which I think makes the blocks look like they're floating.
 When I first picked out fabrics from my stash I thought that the red and white polka dot fabric would steal too much attention. Now that everything is together I think it works well with the other fabrics.
Sometimes when I see fabric on sale I will buy it no matter what.... Even an ugly fabric like this backing that I've had around for 7 years. At first I thought I would never end up using it but it's found a place in this quilt.
I quilted the first sampler quilt for Janet who has a cute British accent that I adore.

 This quilt with needle turn embroidery came from Judy. The colors in this quilt make me think of Spring. It's already warmed up a bit in Texas which makes me even more anxious for spring. 

 The quilting shows up very well on the white backing.
Happy Quilting,
