I have finished my Picnic Quilt.
For the quilting - I did my usual all-over stipple design in a light grey thread. For the binding - I had some left over pieces from the blocks so I cut those up and joined them together for the binding. I've now finished all those bits of fabric as well.
I'm very pleased with this quilt. I think it looks very summery almost and will be nice over a couch or table.
Finished size is 36" square.
This is a close up of the blocks. Each block is made up with 1 x 4.5" square and 2 x 2.5" squares. As you can see, you just rotate each second block along the row. My quilt has 9 blocks across and 6 rows down.
The best part about it, is you can make the quilt any size you like just by adding more blocks. You could also add a border but I didn't want to do that.
I think this would make a nice cot quilt too.
Until next time
