Charlotte's shower quilt...a little late!

 
You might recognize this as the first top I finished up at "Quilting in The Pines"!  I am now happy to report that it is completed!  Although, I did not finish in time for Charlotte's shower.
 
 


I wanted to keep the quilting simple.  This quilt is intended for picnics and "floor time fun".


I used Coats n Clark machine quilting thread in variegated pink.  I love the way it makes this quilt sparkle.






I named this quilt "Floortime Fun".  Before being washed it finished at 58 x 69 1/2.  After washing it measures 54 1/2 x 66 1/2.  It has such a great texture.
