Americana Picnic quilt is done :)


The picnic quilt is done... just in time for the festival. This is made from all the 10" squares we swapped on the quilt and needle. You cant see the center patch well but it's part of the Declaration of Independence... I got the "July 4th" part to show along with the words "America".. and some signatures. Love that center one :)
I went to the beach last night while Al worked and finished up sewing the binding down. Still need to add a label. That's Lake Michigan in the background. This is my favorite beach... it's about 4 miles from us. I took the picture early this morning ... later in the day it will be PACKED!
I made a list of UFOs/WIPs (I prefer the latter term) and Im up to 16! YIKES! I really need to get going on these projects. And STILL I browse the quilt magazines for more ideas....
I think I'll add a list to the side of this blog to keep track of my progress... It'll help to keep me working on my wips instead of starting more.
Top of my list is a western quilt for my brother-in-law. I designed it during the winter when we stayed at his house in AZ. I bought MOST of the fabrics and started the center (it's medallion style) and that's as far as I've gotten. I want to be able to give this to him this winter when we head there again.

Oh Deb, it turned out so pretty. Got to get started on mine, just need to get some other ones finished first.
You have quite a list of "to do's". I haven't written mine down, but I'm sure I have lots too.

Deb, your quilt is just so pretty!!! I admire you for getting so much done! I have so many WIP's too, and maybe if I listed them somewhere I'd knock 'em out faster. LOL! Lovely quilt!

Love that quilt! And I recognize many of those fabrics! Afterall, they totally covered my dining room table for over a week during the swapping process!!! Beautiful quilt!
