This has been such a fun quilt along from Fat Quarter Shop! You’re not too late if you want to make this quilt! I’ve attached each of the videos below if you would like to make one. If I’m being honest, this kind of quilt (one that requires special rulers and templates) is so NOT my style. BUT I have to say I have TOTALLY LOVED making this quilt!
It’s so good to jump out of your comfort zone and try something totally new! You will love how fun this quilt is – the templates make everything fit together perfectly.

Here’s a little overview of the pattern.
The pattern calls for 2 1/2″ strips. You sew them together and use this cook ruler to cut the exact size triangle.
The triangles spin around to form a pinwheel type pattern – cool huh 🙂
I read all the instructions and watched the videos and still managed to sew my first 2 triangles together the wrong way – 3 times – YIKES! Once I got that out of my system it was smooth sailing!
I love having Ella around because I hand her a stack of blocks and she puts them together for me. We did a little experimenting with the pattern for fun.
The blocks sewed together like a dream. I just love this fabric!
I used my Spray n Bond basting spray to baste the quilt and then machine quilted myself using a loopy floral design.
I love bias gingham binding! The great thing about Vintage Picnic is that the gingham is printed on the bias so it saves fabric and is easy to cut!
I am thrilled with my Vintage Picnic fabric choice. I will be keeping this quilt out all summer long! I did modify my quilt slightly in that I made it a touch smaller.
Mufasa seems pretty comfy on the new quilt!
