Last week I started working on turning blue & orange rectangles into a ‘bricked’ effect picnic rug.

Here’s what I’ve done so far:

I’ve been in a bit of a dither over the quilting of this, ‘cos I didn’t feel the ‘outline seam’ quilting was enough, and the plain orange ‘path’ through the middle needed broken up a bit. 

A single line of quilting through the plain orange didn’t satisfy either, and I’d done too much to then start free motioning all over it!  What to do?

After much deliberating, I used some of the fabric leftovers to make hexagons & laid them on the quilt in various ways to see what worked.

I’m liking it better now.  This pile of mess will be the binding:

Almost there!  Check back in a day or two to see the finished quilt!
