This fat quarter quilt pattern is perfect to start working through your over-flowing stash of fat quarters.
I am so excited to show off “The Picnic Quilt”.
The picnic quilt is fast and simple and uses a whole bunch of fat quarters with just a smidge of background fabric. Perfect for stash busting!
The Picnic Quilt Origin Story
I made up our very first picnic quilt when I first started on my quilting journey. I used my two favorite blocks, sawtooth stars and nine-patch blocks. We keep it in the car and any time we are doing an activity with the kids that requires sitting on the grass I pull out this quilt and the kids love pushing their cars across it, eating a quick snack, or taking a rest on it. It has seen parades, 4-h meetings, sports games, and more! It is my most used and well-loved quilt!
I am so excited to make it available to you!
Fat Quarter Quilt Pattern
The Picnic Quilt is the perfect stash-busting pattern! It takes 21 fat quarters and 1.5 yds of a coordinating solid. It looks great with a scrappy mix of colors making it great for pulling fat quarters from your stash.
The Picnic Quilt is a great fat quarter quilt pattern for beginning quilters. It is easy to follow along and teaches you the foundations for these two simple blocks, that make a stunning effect. It’s also great for more advanced quilters looking for a quick project that works through their stash! I know I am always on the hunt for a great fat quarter quilt pattern!
I wanted a nice cozy backing for this one making it a great cuddle on the couch quilt. I used this beautiful green Essex linen fabric. It is so soft and warm!
This quilt was beautifully custom quilted by @kellyannquilts. I adore the swirling in the stars and the geometric design of the nine patches. Having a quilt custom quilted is my go-to especially when I’m short on time or excited about cutting into the next project.
