picnic blanket for the little one

i last night i finally binded the little ones picnic blanket. in theory this is a very easy quilt to make. in reality, if i had instructions instead of just going off of my memory of what i saw at a quilt store up north, and if i had some fabric glue instead of pining every individual square down, it might of been a super easy quilt. but i'm impatient, and being out in the middle of nowhere, i did not have access to buying fabric glue, so i went with it...
my quilting isn't straight and there are some puckers here and there, but the little missy is not yet 2 and i don't think those things matter so much to her. she loves it i love it and i love playing picnic with her (so do the boys, but they don't want me to mention that, shhhh)

could we pretend that my girls are your girls and you could spoil them with all of the cute things that you make your little one? she is so lucky to have a cute little mommy like you who most obviously adores her.
btw-are you gonna share that quilt pattern?

I love it Vanessa- you inspire creativity in me daily! Thanks. Did I mention that I am taking a quilting class on Saturday? I thought you would be very proud. I will let you know how it goes. If my project turns out alright, I might even post picture.
