I picked this Denyse Schmidt gingham print from the Picnic and Fairgrounds collection because it had that lovely retro feel to match the top. I was so pleased with my choice, till I got home and went to piece it together.
It didn't take quite as long to piece as I'd thought, but it did make me want to punch something in the face. Hard.
I quilted it in the same grid pattern, but with a red variegated thread this time, to match the backing. And the binding is a red and white candy cane type of pinstripe. The kind that makes you dizzy when you lay out the yardage.
It'll be off to the West Coast in plenty of time for her mum's birthday next month. Hope she likes it!
