The super fun thing about this pattern, is that the blocks are pieced on point. I know right, they don't look on point. But that is the beauty of it. They are pieced on point, and then trimmed, with very little waste, so you will still be able to get those perfect points every time!!! So great :)
And when it came time to quilt it I went with an all over Swirl with an open center. I love how this designs add so much movement, and all of those beautiful swirls soften all of those wonderful angles. And my Pearl 402 So Fine thread blended perfectly with all of these colors. It really is my go to quilting color ;)
I just used a Navy for the background, and then cut all of my print fabrics in wonderful scraps all from my Yellow Bin. Isn't it just so fun!!! I love how all of those scrappy prints just blend together to make a seemingly two color quilt. Just perfect!!!
And the pattern makes it super easy to know exactly how much to cut from your scraps to make this go together super quick while doing some serious scrap busting. Yippee!!!
I quilted this version of Playground Picnic in an all over echoed paisley design. And I used Navy thread and love the way it pops on the yellow. And if you like this design, I have a video tutorial here on how I do it ;)
And that's the second Playground Picnic. And both options are in the pattern!!! And just like all my patterns, this is a full color pattern that can be printed in either page format or book format. It is filled with lots of wonderful illustrations to guide you along each step of the way. You are going to have so much fun putting this together ;) And of course, if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to email me ;)
And those are my new Playground Picnic quilts and the new Playground Picnic pattern!!!! Again, the pattern can be found in my Etsy Shop and will be on special for $5.50 all this week ;)
Thanks for popping in today and I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
