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.
