Summer is here !

The lilies are starting to bloom

The strawberries are ripe

and my first ever quilt is finished just in time for the first picnic of summer.

It's not perfect - the corners of the binding are kind of weird, but I don't care !

I love the way ity turned out. It took a surprising amount of time to decide where to place the different blocks, but the sewing was quick and the quilting of the top was fun.

The dollies grabbed the quilt the minute the last stitch was made and headed out side for a lovely ( felt ) strawberry tea under the trees. Don't forget your napkin, Mr. Bear !

Looks like it will be a grand summer .
