Happy Hump Day sweet friends! It's quilt till you wilt time. I'm working hard to finish up this by the weekend.
Some of you may remember this quilt from a couple years ago. I named her Patriotic Picnic. You can see more of the quilt here.
The applique on this quilt is quite large but was really quick and easy using invisible machine applique. You can see more about how I did the machine applique here.
Finding the backing fabric for this quilt was a two week ordeal but was so worth the hours of searching. I wanted a wide backing but after being let down with the wrong size or color I found this super cute little bird fabric at Donna's Lavender Nest Etsy Shop. Bet you can guess the manufacturer....yep....Lakehouse Drygoods! Of course there wasn't enough of this one either but I'm in love with it so I must have it! I pulled 2 more fabrics from the stash to add with the cute little birdies for a scrappy backing.
Time to get back to quilting.
See you in a few!
Linking up with these lovely blogs.

Hi Lea Anne,ReplyDelete
Well this is sure coming along great! I love all the fabric I can see - Patriotic Picnic is the perfect name, and those little birdies and friends will look fab on the backing too.
Your Picnic will be gorgeous! Love the backing fabric.ReplyDelete
Great looking quilt! I can't wait to see the whole thing. Is it your own pattern or can we expect to see you publish it for all of us to enjoy? :-) Hugs, HReplyDelete
