Friday Night Sew-In: Saturday Morning Report, May 2011

Thanks to Heidi and Bobbi for hosting another great Friday Night Sew-In.  (Click on the button right to join in next month)  This is as far as I've got with my scrappy floral picnic cloth yesterday.  I've used all the six inch squares I got from Susan, the Quixotic Crafter, and now need to find something suitably summery for the border.  I was tempted to head off to the LQS this morning but think I might be better off looking at dress fabric.  I'm going to have a simple six inch border with contrasting floral corners and then I'll need to think about quilting but I want it finished to use this summer so it'll be something straightforward.  I love it already, thanks Susan.
On the subject of florals, the Californian poppies are looking splendid in the garden at the moment:
Have a lovely weekend and can I add two massive thank yous?

  1. Love your quilt, so far. Such restful colors. And "your" poppy is gorgeous. Just think, we used to have fields and fields full of them. The old timers tell about seeing them. Sadly that time is over. Now you see a clump of them and are in awe.
    Hugs right back at you, Lis.
