Happy Friday to you all!

We had gorgeous blue skies today!

The perfect day for a picnic perhaps?

This is my Bobbles Picnic Quilt, currently featured in the August issue of Popular Patchwork.

I love jumbo pompoms (these ones are 20mm, available from Frumble Fabrics).

This pattern starts off with 36 x 10″ squares, so you could easily use a layer cake here.

I’ve quilted the quilt with a calico backing first, then added the pompom trim and a water resistant back (washable shower curtain) using the ‘bagging out’ method. A few extra stitches in the centre of the blocks keeps all the layers neatly together.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we get lots more ‘blue sky’ days so I can christen my picnic quilt!
Happy picnic-ing!
