My Picnic quilt top is now finished and off to the quilter's. With a little nudging from my dh, I got the backing put together and got it sent off. I have never worked with blues and oranges before. That is one of the things that I love about quilting - you get to work with so many different colour combinations that you might not choose. I have lots of scraps left over, and would love to many another quilt using those colours. As always, I know I am going to enjoy the quilt more once I see the the quilting. As always too, I know it will be a hard quilt to give it away, but it will be going to my wonderful niece as a graduation gift. The years fly by so quickly. I can remember when she was a toddler following me around. The love continues to grow.

Linking to Linky Tuesday.

Beautiful quilt. I agree that it is fun to use colors you might not otherwise choose when making a quilt. I know it will be loved.
