fancy katie at the fairground… a picnic quilt

Kind of a mouthful! This is the start of what will hopefully become a large patchwork picnic quilt. I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking it would be fun to combine my favorite Denyse Schmidt lines (Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope) with her new Picnic & Fairground line from Joann’s. I also added in some Kei polka dots, a few Lecien stripes and some American Jane pez prints. It’s bright and cheerful and I think it will make a great picnic quilt.

As you know, I do love me a patchwork quilt, and right now while I don’t have tons of extra time, this is the perfect design. During the past couple weeks I’ve spent a few minutes each day cutting squares out of all these fabrics (in between snuggling with Max and photographing cute baby legs and baby toes!) and putting them up on the design wall. I realized that even though I’ve made a lot of quilts using this type of design, they’ve all been baby sized. I went a little overboard while cutting squares, so I should certainly have enough squares to make up a much larger patchwork quilt. Now onto the sewing and ironing…
