Thanks to those of you who offered solutions / ideas to this quilting problem.
In the end I decided to go with an upholstery weight fabric from Spotlight ... cheap as chips and the girl just loves it!!
It even has a bit of sparkly glitter through it!!
(Hard to photograph the sparkle ... but trust me!!)
Simply quilted and with matching binding ...
Happiness is a colourful girly picnic rug!!!
Have a stitchin' Tuesday!!
Oooh I love it!
HOW pretty! I love it! You're going to have some wonderful picnics on THAT!
Pink sparkly glittery fabric, what more could a girl want? Looks perfect.
Andi, what a great quilt and your binding looks so neat - how about a little tutorial, please!
Hugs - Lurline♥
A great quilt! Gotta love those Spotlight finds!
Oh, the colours are perfectly matched!
I love the colour combinations in this!
Andi, beautiful quilt:)
this is gorgeous...i love the fun and bright colors
Wow! I don't think I could eat my picnic sandwiches if I had that under me. I'd be too busy admiring the fabric....
I've long been a fan of a pink & green combo . . with the aqua etc it looks great!
Just right for your little girl huh!
One of my daughters has an apron in that fabric! Isn't it funny to see others using fabrics you have? That quilt is just so pretty! I love the fabrics you have used. So pretty and girly. And that binding is a perfect match.
O, so pretty! I just love your solution! Great when it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg AND looks so great!
Just beautiul, I love the fabrics and your quilting looks great.
The colours and fabrics are wonderful and the backing, what young lady wouldn't love a little bling.
Every picnic rug needs a bit of glitter to catch the sun. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous - I love the colours and that binding is perfect.
Oooh Andi, this is stunning! I might have to copy those colours together in something, I love them. The backing is great, and nice that it's cheap too! I love your stripe binding. Fab job xo
that is soooo pretty. i just love all the fabrics you have chosen! rock on!
Gorgeous, gorgeous quilt!
That is exactly what I want to make - a gorgeous picnic rug! Happy Blogiversary too!! (sorry I'm late)
A late happy bloggversary, Andi!!
The picnic quilt is gorgeous. I love it for all the beautiful fabric and simple layout. I think that is a great idea for a gift, have to put it on my list....
That colourful picnic rug is happiness indeed!
Sigh ... I love it !
Happiness indeed! Such a lucky girl, she is! :)
This is beautiful! I love how cheerful and super girly it is. The quilting is wonderful, too.:)
It's like a ray of sunshine.
Happiness you're right, I love it!
gorgeous! love your colours!
I guess since it is the best pudding in the world I could pass it on. Well it is in our house anyway. I'll blog it next time I blog, so look out for it. The best thing about it is you don't need eggs so you can usually guarantee you have all the ingredients.
Lovely! Like the cheerful colours.
This should earn coolest quilt of the year award...
