picnic quilt top done!

My picnic quilt top is done. I'm just waiting for the thread to get here to quilt it. The backing fabric I have for this is a lime green with all the colors on the front with butterflies and flowers. Really cute. So I've ordered some lime green thread to quilt it with. Not sure how that is going to look because I've only quilted with white or off white. I'll probably do a sample piece first because there is no way I'm ripping out quilting! ripping out seams is my least favorite thing to do! This quilt is going to be used for all our day trips we take exploring the country. We love to take drives to the Lake Tahoe area, especially North Shore. Also we like to head out east to the middle of Nevada and pack a lunch and scout out cool places to camp. This quilt will be great to use on our trips. In a year we will be heading back to Southern California and I think this will be a perfect beach quilt!
