So now I can proudly show you what I've been up to these last days.
This beauty (although I should not say so myself, but then again... I like it! can't help it!) was some sort of personal challenge: Sister-in-law asked me to make her something that should include the funny little ants my (fantastic) sewing machine can embroid all by herself (yes, I did name my sewing machine... I'm that crazy). So... what about a picnic quilt with little black ants?

And Picnic with ants was created, cut, pieced, batted, basted, quilted, labelled and binded. It's not difficult, only very long because of the horizontal quilting, which if it's a light task on a baby quilt size, on a square lap quilt size (150cmx150cm) is quite loooooooong and tricky.
I'll post soon a 'technical sheet' for this quilt, in which I'll explain the process behind the project. I'm not sure I'll be able to write a pattern for you, but you should still get the idea.
