Awesome Picnic Quilt

The Awesome Picnic Quilt is completed.
 I finished the last few inches on the binding
 while watching TV last night.
Then into the washer and dryer it went 
to get all the cuddly dimples and bumps.
I think those dimples also hide some of the imperfections.
I followed Jamie's Awesome Lap Quilt
instructions on Moda Bake Shop's blog,
but added some borders to make it a little bigger.
I used a selection of country French prints from Moda.
Mr. Romance and I have been to France several times,
and these fabrics reminded me of the table linens
for sale in all the open air markets, when I saw them.
I can imagine a romantic picnic for two
in the French countryside.
A nice bottle of wine,
a selection of meats and cheeses and a baguette.
Add Mr. Romance and it's a perfect day.

The quilt measures 54" x 62"
and was long arm quilted by Natalia
I am so pleased with this quilt.
Thanks to Jamie for her great tutorial.
