{the beginning of a picnic quilt}

I am in the middle of Spring boutique season and have no business quilting instead of working on show inventory, but I ran across this quilt block tutorial yesterday and HAD to try it. Yep. Had to. So I did!

 This is a Whirligig block and I think it's just so cute and PERFECT for a picnic quilt!

I went through all my scraps and pulled coordinating fabrics to match those sweet little strawberries!

For now I have to be happy with just the one block because I have SO much other sewing to do, but I am super excited to finish this quilt and take my boys on a spring picnic!

Have a happy day!
