Finally, finally I finished that summer picnic blanket! I used the Playing Along Quilt pattern from Seams to Me, but backed it with an Ikea bedspread and didn't quit anything. Simple binding with quilter's bias tape (purchased from the store in the interest of time).

For you fabric geeks (are there any? Jods?), these are vintage fabrics with some Robert Kaufman, Denyse Schmidt Katie Jump Rope, and some run of the mill JoAnn calicos. I call it my Tupperware blanket, because it matches my wonderful seventies Tupperware collection. But since it's not really picnic weather, it's taking up residence in the living room for now.

Oh yeah, and that living room rug finally came. That room is starting to feel finished too. But that rug: it really ties the room together.


  1. Dear Oliver, Etta, Amy, & Brian,
    I miss you already, please come visit again soon!
    Lots of love,
    Auntie Karleen

  2. Wow, that's a beautiful, beautiful quilt! Well done :)

  3. Thank you so much! Projects like this take me so long nowadays... a little praise is oh so rewarding!

  4. Congratulations, Beez! It looks really great. You'll love it for years! Rug is nice too......
