    Just want to share with you the "picnic quilt", I made from another one of Luv's swaps. I had no idea what I was going to do with the fabrics. This is what I did. It is "grandma's picnic quilt." I am also using it to teach my little man the names of foods. And you of course need vegetables and fruits, but also desserts. I will not be participating in this round of Luv's swap, but am looking forward to the next one. Glad you are back.

    OK I just found this in the other post-



    It is food.

    Most are having difficulties finding just food so ANYTHING you deem 'picnic'... (picnic baskets, food, utensils, grass, ANYTHING picnic)

    Happy Shopping..

    Thought I would give some ideas for this swap. Hope it is ok.
    Lobster, spoons and forks, cups, wine, landscape, bees, butterflies, clover, birds, snacks, candy, chocolate, desserts, fruits and veggies,sky, stars, rainbows, plates, red and white checkerboard or any kind of tablecloth looking fabric, bicycle, champagne, camera. Hope this helps.
