  36. My Amy Butler charm square quilt is my favorite! I tied it and did some straight line quilting between some of the rows, but not much as I wanted to keep it puffy. I actually slept under it for two weeks with out finishing the binding during a 31 day camping trip.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would love to make a picnic blanket and it's the only reason I opted to take the light colored denim my Mother in Law was cleaning out of her stash (no way was I using it for apparel). It seemed like it would be the perfect backing, but now I think maybe this pattern would be cute with it!

  52. One of the first quilts I made was a scrappy log cabin that included double knits, polyester, seersucker, and denim. It has withstood over 20 years of picnics.

    ReplyDelete
  53. the one year my son decided to play baseball. It has since spent every winter at his hockey games, goes camping, goes to performances in the park and everywhere else I go. It is time to make a new one - and this ruler would be so much easier than making my own templates like I did when I made that style of denim quilt before.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I made a picnic quilt that folds into a shoulder bag, perfect to take along on trips!

  57. My Eclipse quilt that I made a couple of years ago is a summer parade favorite. Blocks were won in The Block Lotto. I embroidered the person's first name and where they were from on the ring of the eclipse. Blocks are from all over the world in bright colors in a somewhat modern setting. LOVE it! It is also on my couch all the time, but it's the most used quilt besides our bed quilts.

  60. I do have a fav quilt. I made Bonnie Hunter's "Strip Twist" with swap strips. As I was putting it together I wasn't liking some of "my" extra fabric choices. But when I picked a semi bright blue border and put it on it is now my favorite "go to" quilt! Love it! cakilliany at hotmail . com

    ReplyDelete
  61. I have a summer quilt which is basically layer cake squares on point.. I backed it with a flannel sheet and did not use batting - which is why it's a "summer" quilt! I stitched in the ditch to hold the layers together.

    It's the perfect weight to throw on the ground, bundle up to go somewhere or take a nap under.

    ReplyDelete
  62. My favorite picnic quilt is a quilt I made 25 years ago from bits and pieces. My children were small and I pieced it while watching their soccer/baseball games. It has been patched several times but still brings a smile to everyone.

  86. As my maternal grandmother aged, her arthritis was so bad that she could not hand quilt and she thought hand quilting was the way to do it. She still liked to make quilt tops, so she would make strip quilts with flat-felled seams. These tops could be used as bed spreads or throws. I have several of those that I like to use.

  130. I have four sisters. Back in the '70's we made quilt tops with scraps of double knit that my mom had made us dresses out of. We never got the quilts put together with backing, batting, and binding but since they're double knit they don't fray or come apart. I keep mine in my car. It's been used for picnics, keeping dog hair off sofas, as a tarp, you name it. It hasn't faded and washes up just as easy as you please. It's my first "quilt" and has many memories sewn up into it. If probably cry for days if I ever lost it.

  140. Hi There Melissa,
    Funny you should ask about picnic quilts...I am in the process of making one. as we speak! I am part of a block swap for Canadians on Facebook and my month was March. I designed a large block(18") based on a Courtyard Steps block, but it has a large 9-patch in the center instead of 1 single square. My colours were Aqua & Orange for the logs and solid white & lime green for the center 9-patch. I received 7 blocks and have made 7 more. I'm wanting to have a total of 16 blocks so it will be a nice-sized picnic quilt!
    Hope I win the circle ruler as I too have been saving up old jeans for a similar quilt(one of many...LOL).
    Quilty Huggs,
    Jacqueline

  141. Hi there Melissa,
    So, I just popped on over to June Tailor and found an awesome cutting mat: 23" x 23" Grid - Quilting Mate™ with Templates Mat. This would be so perfect for me as I love piecing big blocks!
    Thanks!

  142. I don't know how I lived without the June Taylor Shape Cut for strips. I use that thing so much when I cut kits, binding, whatever! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  143. We have a very old quilt that my grandmother made from my granddad's old suits, with red twill as the binding and backing. We can sit on that and never feel the bumps on the ground, it's so thick and heavy! It's a crazy quilt pattern embroidered by hand with red thread. It's getting a little shabby but we love it.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I am not one for sitting on the ground for a picnic so no quilts for this purpose. Aren't there ants down there on the ground? :) But I will use a bench or bring my camping chair and bug away with me. I do however keep two blankets in my car, one is crocheted and the other is a bright fleece that I made.

  146. I do have a favorite summer quilt for picnics! It was the first quilt I ever made...about 35 years ago. It's a simple patchwork design using various purple fabrics and yarn-tied. It was on my bed for a few years, then it's gone to the beach, to baseball games, picnics, camping and family trips! It's had quite the list of experiences!
