Picnic quilt top complete . . .

I managed to spend some time in the craft room during nap time this week and finished piecing together my picnic quilt. I used the drunkard's path die with my Baby GO!, some Kona solid in ash for the borders, and a big mix of fat quarters for the blocks. It measures 65" square.
Now I'm going to put this one aside for awhile while I decide on a backing ~ maybe something heavier-weight than a cotton since it's going to be used outside? I'll have to browse some fabric shops before I decide :)
