Peachy Picnic Quilt

I recently finished a 9 patch quilt using several Heather Bailey fabrics. Some of them I purchased and some of them I won in one of her early giveaways.
 Here is a close up. The top went together pretty easily but I struggled with the quilting some. I just couldn't make up my mind. After washing it I think it needs more stitching, it isn't crinkley enough.
 I am still in love with gingham binding.
 Doesn't it look nice laying on the guest bed? So fresh, like a warm spring day.
 It is a perfect picnic sized quilt at 45" x 45".
 The back is patchy because I don't want to buy new fabric...yet.
This project has got me thinking we need to pack a picnic basket grab the dogs and go find some dirt.
We have another eight days of snow coming our way. Yikes!
