3rd finish for 5 by the end of July

I worked like a maniac yesterday afternoon - as we had a big picnic to go to last night. Lots of friends, lots of food, swiming and kayaking/canoeing in the pond (you get the idea).

And I got this quilt done, binding machine sewn on, 15 minutes before we were ready to leave.

And I am in love with it. Our friends were in love with it. Complete strangers were in love with it (although one lady did ask me how I could stand to have it laying on the grass with kids eating on it and rolling around on it - HELLO!?!?!?!? THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF A "PICNIC QUILT.")

It's been a busy weekend - but we have gotten lots accomplished. Jessie is camping with her girl scout troop - she'll be home shortly - I cannot wait to hear the stories she has to tell.
