Oh Yah! This is a pretty fun looking quilt, don't you think?
Swooning Picnic Quilt Top
I just loved quilting this one. I haven't hand quilted since the first quilt I made for my husband.
I loved the peacefulness of sitting on the couch and using perlé cotton embroidery thread. Honestly, I hadn't used it before and I got my inspiration from the wee pixie.
Doesn't the rooster look even cuter all framed with the quilting? I think so.
Here is the backing, simply pieced with four large squares meeting in the middle (almost).
And because stripes just make the perfect binding, I couldn't resist.
