Blogger's Quilt Festival - Picnic




My entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival is my Picnic quilt. It is a pattern from Scrap-Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett. It was made for my niece who graduated from High School and has gone off to University.




It was a fun quilt to make. When I asked my niece what her favourite colours are she told me Blue and Orange. I have never worked with that combination before, but as I started coming through my stash I realized that I had lots of those colours together. At some point I will make another quilt using the leftover pieces.



When I was at my LQS I found the perfect background and in the sale section too! I love the flowers with the orange and yellow centres. 

I gave the quilt to my niece in the summer and she was so happy; much more than I ever expected. Quilting gives me so much. It provides stress-release, a chance to add some beauty to this world and I way to show my love for the people who mean so much to me.


The quilt is 48 X 60 and I am entering it in the Small Quilt Category.
