A Little Sew and Tell

I can't believe I haven't shown this little quilt yet. A few months ago, I did the Above All Fabric quilt-a-long for this cute, and super easy, picnic quilt.
I used DS Quilt fabric from Joann's. It is really pretty in person and feels nice. I mean, it should feel nice because it is way more expensive than the other offerings at Joann's. Thank goodness for coupons. Am I right, ladies?
I love the blue floral print the most. It just reminds me of summer in the South for some reason.
I had to piece the back, so I added a stripe of the dots bordered in the green check for a little interest.
We used it on the 4th of July, and Curly used it when he took Mini-me on a date to Wolf Trap. It's the perfect size for just a couple of people to sit and eat al fresco.
I'm having a bit of a celebration letdown today. I mean, it's not a birthday or an anniversary. There were no presents or cards or packages. What a lame Wednesday! Luckily we have a wedding this weekend. I have been looking forward to the cake all week, only to be informed that there wouldn't be any. Oh well. San Diego has cupcake shops, right?

Nothing is more disappointing than a wedding with no cake.
