Ready to go on a perfect picnic adventure? Let’s Go!
I called up my friend Katie for a little picnic adventure so out we went to the park at the pond near her house where we laid out the blanket and our other picnic companion, Brooke, to verify comfort
She seemed to approve so we plopped our bums down and kicked off the flip flops
We sat and watching the mom & dad Canadian Geese with their little goslings
We had packed a picnic but made a couple mistakes…first we forgot the sandwich, also forgot the spoon for the yogurt and fork for pickles. Oh and we forgot the corkscrew for the wine…but whatever it was a beautiful day. We had apple chips, pickles with our fingers & drank iced tea in mason jars
This picnic blanket is an oversized Colorado Beauty Star block, I made 16 half square triangle blocks, each HST is 15″ finished
Adding to the list of things I forgot: a kindle or quilting magazine to show off the magazine pocket. It’ll also be perfect to tuck phones into on the beach later this simmer to keep them out the direct sunlight this summer.
I tried to do a flat felled seam for the backing but messed it up but it’s still a great seam back there!
Nature came to visit too and seemed to approve of our picnic which I had to snap a photo of
