    My Picnic Quilt

    I've been collecting homespuns for several years now. Finally made something for myself, a picnic quilt to keep in my car. And I still have a bin full of plaids left. Now we just have to find time to relax and go on a picnic.

    I love it. Very "homey" looking.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Every picnic needs the sunshine yellows that you put in.

    YC, Cape Cod is exactly where we go for picnics. I'll be riding the Falmouth bike trail and then stop for a picnic along the beach. Haven't been there yet this summer. Hoping to go next week. This weekend was a washout, but we needed the rain real bad.

    Really nice!!!! Looks very comfy!!! What size is it and what size squares/blocks did you use? I really like it!!

    Thanks for taking a peek at my quilt. I wanted to make a quick quilt, of course, nothing is ever quick. Each block is 6" and there are 10 across. The border is 5". The toughest part was fussy cutting each block so the plaids are fairly straight. I emphasize fairly straight. I wanted to use a serpentine stitch across the blocks to quilt it, but my Bernina doesn't have one. I found if you lengthen one of the zig zags, it looks like a serpentine. Then I used my BSR to stipple, but I'm not that good at avoiding sharp angles. Dh says I have way too much time into my quilts to use them on the ground or on a grungy table in the woods. I say, that's why they invented washing machines.
