Join Me For a Picnic?

Remember a couple weeks ago when I was telling you about that kindness package I received from Jennifer Paganelli? I was compelled to make something right away with those fabrics, rather than hoarding them in my stash.

Inspired by the picnic quilt in this quilting book, I decided to make my own version, since I love dining al fresco.

I just love how it turned out! It measures to a 50 inch square, and could be used as a tablecloth as well.  I think these fabrics were destined for this project because I had just a few small scraps left, pieces that measure about 8 inches x 16 inches.

I am going to use a solid blue fabric for the backing, and I’m going to quilt it with flannel instead of batting so we can use it as a table cloth too.

By the way, I will be closing my giveaway on Sunday, May 31, in case you haven’t entered yet.
