So, this might be my new favorite :)  Say hello to Picnic at the Fairgrounds... Picnic at the Fairgrounds quilt

I love absolutely everything about this quilt.

I just knew that the combination of Camille Roskelley's Cheerio quilt pattern and Denyse Schmidt's Picnic and Fairground fabric would be perfection...and I am not at all disappointed.

I also love this quilt because I finally pushed past my fear of straight line quilting on the longarm.  Now I wonder, why did I wait so long to try this?!?!  I LOVE the look and texture of straight line quilting.  I will never push a big quilt through my little Bernina again to do it :) And don't my flowers look so great with the quilt too?

The red dot binding is a happy touch and really does make me think of summertime, picnics and fairgrounds.

The backing fabric is another DS Quilts print that I picked up at JoAnn's from her Sweet Ruby line.  It is still in most shops if you are interested.  The red, white and blue print is a perfect patriotic touch to this summer quilt.

And one more picture, just because I couldn't help myself.
