Chic Picnic Quilt

wv1

This is Wendy’s Chic Picnic quilt and it is a pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful using there Quick Curve ruler.   I actually pieced this quilt for Wendy as it will be a shop sample.  When I was at her place this January and looking at her pile of quilt kits she needed to make I said “give me one to take home and make”.  So I came home with Chic Picnic!  I know I would have fun quilting it and I did!  This will be available as a kit at Wendy’s shop Fabriculous in Swan River, MB.  The fabrics are a collection of Cotton and Steel with a light beige background.

I quilted it all with a light beige So Fine thread and used the 15” Quilted Pineapple Curved template to quilt the curves. I also used the Quilted Pineapples 12” Straight Edge rulers for the lines.  The rest is done free hand.  When I quilted out the first diamond shape and send Wendy a photo to see if she liked the design I said I was ready to rip it out as the pebbles were pretty big!  She loved the large pebbles ( 1 1/4” in diameter)  and called them ‘Big Boulders” and they had to stay. So I quilted Big Boulders which are harder than pebbles,  so in case your crazy like me and want to try that you have been warned!

The back is a solid grey Colourworks fabric by Northcott.    The solid fabrics show off the quilting so well.

  1. *gasp* .... Absolutely stunning! You really have outdone yourself in both the piecing and FMQing. Your friend had better have lots of the kits ready, as I am sure after seeing yours, they will be a hot seller! And I see, lots more Big Boulders in your future! :)
