April UFO Busted

Things have moving slowly this month.  Didn't know if I would make it or not. I spent Monday pin basting Floribunda and Baby Trips.  Yesterday I machine quilted Floribunda and last night I sewed down the binding.  I am happy to say I have finished one UFO.



This is going to be our picnic quilt.  It looks so much better in person.  It is not my favorite quilt but it is finished.

Here is a peek at the backing....



I saved some of the backing fabric.  Now I need to think of a project for it.

Today I am hoping to get Baby Trips quilted.  Maybe I will be able to show you another finish tomorrow.

Tiger game was rained out yesterday.  It has been raining steady all morning so I won't be surprised to see another rain out.

Hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

I like it, Cathy. Did you intend the effect of the upper left corner of light gradually getting darker down in the lower right corner?

Love the layout of your Florabunda, great for camping or the bed. Nice and sunny.

Nice design for your quilt. I don't know that I would use it for a picnic quilt. I would spill something on it for sure.
