The Quilt Tutorial is Included!

This wonderful picnic quilt is perfect for taking along to summer’s many outdoor events. The large blocks make it a simple project and one that will go together fairly quickly.

The designer provides many helpful tips for making the quilt extra sturdy to handle wear and tear. We like the wider, heavier binding so the edges stay down on the ground in a breeze.

Of course the quilt will be just as nice used inside as a throw. Or, add more blocks for a bed sized quilt. The quilt shown here was tied but you can quilt it however you like. You can also substitute batting for the flannel used by the designer.

The finished quilt, from Kitchen Table Quilting, is 72″ x 72″, while the blocks are 24″ square.

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!
