Picnic Quilt


Tonight's festivities, originally uploaded by nkiblueeyes.
I've been meaning to finish this picnic quilt. For over a year. It's been in my living room with safety pins in it...

Am tying it. Not quilting it. It's WAY too big to try on my machine and since we're going to roll around in the grass with it, I don't want to spend $ to have it machine quilted. Did I mention that it's really big? It is.

And since I have 2 boys, not just 1, I've decided to make another one of these picnic quilts. That way, they'll both have one. No fighting over it when they grow up.

I got some more batik charm squares from a couple of exchanges, so I have more than I'll need (I think) to complete this quilt's twin.

I've started sewing together squares for it, but it'll take a while at this rate...

Any progress is better than none at all! I love the colors. What did you use for the backing since it's a picnic quilt?

Thanks! I posted a picture on a new blog entry of the backing. Tried to pick something that would not show stains...

I have some batik charms I can give you, I don't work with it but got it in a swap! I'll try to bring it Thursday!
