Picnic Quilt

I hope everyone out there had a nice holiday weekend. We had perfect weather all weekend, which gave us a lot of beach and park time. I can't believe it's Thursday already. The week has flown by with very little sewing time.

I was able to get some nice pictures of my picnic quilt at the park over the weekend:

Quite windy...but at least it was nice and sunny.
This was the first quilt I finished earlier this Spring. It was hand quilted, so it took an extra long time to finish. I spent many evenings hand quilting to get this one finished--and spent a lot of time with the seam ripper along the way.

This weekend was also my first time taking quilt photos outside (or during the day). Makes a world of difference.
I'm off this weekend on a wedding road trip. I love road trips, and weddings.
Happy Friday!


  1. Love the colors of this quilt! And it's awesome that you hand quilted! I took pics of one of my quilts outside for the first time last week and it was AH-mazing! I can't believe how much the light helps haha, Have a good weekend!

  2. What a great quilt! The combination of orange, yellow and green goes great together! ts a Beauty!!!

  3. Love this quilt! The colors are fantastic and I love you pics!!

  4. Wow, all that hand quilting, great work. I'm a free-motion fan myself. The colours just dazzle in the sunlight and the backing is just perfect.

  5. Beautiful pics of your quilt and congratulations on hand quilting. I love hand quilting so relaxing. Thanks for sharing. (
