Thursday June 5

Friday June 6

I am sew looking forward to visiting all these picnic spots!

I have always loved a picnic.
There is something so nice about casual outdoor noshing with friends and family.
I start picnicing in the spring as soon as the weather warms.
Picnics are my favorite part of summer. 
I also love to picnic in the fall with the leaves falling around me.
I have even been known to picnic in the snow.
Everyone needs a picnic basket in their life.
A picnic basket has been my "go-to" gift for weddings since I was in college.
Here is the one I gave to my daughter last summer for a wedding gift.
It is outfitted for two with wine glasses and plates and is very roomy.
I tucked in a bottle of wine for my daughter, a bottle of stout for my son-in-law, 
some tasty non-perishable goodies and a gift certificate for their favorite grocery store.
It came with a soft olive green fleece blanket attached with straps to the side.
Nice ... but not as nice as a QUILT.
So clearly I needed to make My Girl a Picnic Quilt for a 1st Anniversary gift for this summer.
