Without looming deadlines of trade shows and fabric releases to speed up my pace, I’ve been slowly working on a few Spring patterns. Turns out that I really need deadlines, or I will procrastinate until the end of time!
The first pattern I started working on was this Picnic quilt pattern.
I grabbed a stack of fat quarters from my stash, mostly basics with a floral from Rifle Paper Co. and those cute apples from the Smol fabric line. I wanted this quilt to have a woven look, similar to Jelly Weave but with larger pieces and intertwined fabrics.
(This was before my new design wall…I swear quilt blocks nicely laid out on the floor instantly attract kids+pets to mess them up!).
The blocks in this quilt are laid out on point, and if you’ve never attempted an on point quilt, this is a great place to start! They aren’t as scary as they look!
Kaitlyn did the quilting on this, she chose the design and it’s perfect for it.
The backing came from Joann fabrics.
Happy Quilting! -Allison
