Other Fabric Styles Will be Wonderful Too!

Easy star blocks in reproduction fabrics come together in a lovely quilt. The pieced border adds to its vintage charm and helps to evoke a simpler time.

Soft yellow is a wonderful background for the fabrics chosen by the designer. It gives the quilt a warm and happy personality that will cheer any room.

Life's a Picnic Quilt Pattern

Other backgrounds will be lovely too. Choose a soft color that contrasts well with the star patches (a variety of fat quarters gives the quilt is scrappy look). Whatever color you choose will pull the scrappy patches together and unify the quilt.

The finished quilt, from designer Darlene Zimmerman, is 56 1⁄2″  × 72 1⁄2″.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
