Patchwork Picnic Quilt Tutorial - In Color Order
Patchwork Picnic Quilt, a photo by jenib320 on Flickr.
When I think of summer quilts, the first thing I think of is patchwork. Something about simple patchwork screams summer to me! So when a delicious stack of fabrics arrived from Art Gallery Fabrics on Friday, I instantly knew they needed to become a sweet, summery, patchwork quilt.  From there, everything fell into place for this quilt.  I ran up to my favorite shop to grab background fabric, Robert Kaufman Quilter's Linen in Natural. On my way home, I stopped at a thrift shop and found the vintage sheet I used for backing (for more info on sewing with vintage sheets, see this post).  Between Friday and Sunday, that stack became this sweet modern quilt.  Sometimes you just get that sewing energy burst, I sure did this weekend!

This quilt has been in my head for a long time. The quilt in my head used linen and soft, romantic colors, so the quilt that resulted is pretty darn close! She finishes off at 68"x72", a great size for a summer nap or picnic.  I quilted it with simple diagonal lines using Aurifil thread in beige, and bound it in a print from Little Folks by Anna Maria Horner.

I had a lot of fun playing with these fabrics! It's a bit of Summerlove, new Oval Elements and new Pure Elements, out in March. Thanks to Art Gallery for sending me these fabrics.

Patchwork Picnic Quilt Tutorial - In Color Order

I wanted to write up a quick how-to for this quilt, so that you can make your own! It comes together really fast, and it doesn't take a lot of thinking, so it's perfect for the weekend when we all should be relaxing! It utilizes a checkerboard pattern, alternating between background and print squares. This makes it great for chain-piecing, where you continue to stitch blocks together without clipping your threads in between. So, let's get to it!

Patchwork Picnic Quilt
Sewing Level: Beginner Friendly

Materials
- 10 fat quarters (or 3 charm packs, or 1 layer cake)*
- 2 1/4 yards of solid or semi-solid fabric for background
- 1/2 yd of binding fabric
- 4 1/4 yds of backing fabric (or a full/double size bedsheet)
- 2 1/4 yds of batting (76"x80" piece)
- Coordinating thread

Note: 1/4" seam allowances
Finished Size: 68"x72"

*For this quilt you'll need a total of 120 print 5" squares and 120 background 5" squares. You could use more or less fabrics for desired variety!

Cutting
Patchwork Picnic Quilt Tutorial - In Color Order
Patchwork Picnic Quilt, a photo by jenib320 on Flickr.
From fat quarters:
- cut (3) 5"x22" strips
- from these strips cut (4) 5" squares
12 squares per fat quarter for a total of 120 squares.

From background fabric:
- cut (15) 5" x WOF (width of fabric) strips
- from these strips cut (8) 5" squares
Total of 120 squares.

From binding fabric:
- cut (7) 2.5" x WOF strips

1. Sew a 5" print square to a 5" background square. Continue until all the squares are paired up.

2. Sew together pairs of squares, making sure to match up background and print squares. Continue until all the pairs are sewn into strips of four squares.

*I like to use a plastic tub or paper bag to hold my squares as I'm piecing so that I can mix them up and get maximum variety! 

3. Sew together sets of four squares, making sure to match up background and print squares. Continue until all the four square sets are sewn into strips of eight squares.

4. Sew together sets of 8 squares, making sure to match up background and print squares. Continue until you have 15 strips of 16 squares each. These are your finished rows!

5. Press your seams to one side, pressing all your rows the same direction.

6. Lay out your quilt, flipping your rows every other row to create the checkerboard pattern above. Label your rows if you'd like! I use scraps of paper and safety pins!

7. Sew together your quilt top, pressing your rows either open or in one direction. Your top is done!

8. To piece your backing, first cut your backing yardage in half. Press. Carefully trim off the selvedges and sew your pieces together lengthwise.

I am so new to quilting and this is a true inspiration for me! I love your blog! I hope I am chosen because I looooove the giveaway fabric!

Michele said...

That turned out beautiful Jeni. Simple checkerboard quilts are a favorite of mine too. And sew perfect that you found a vintage sheet that worked for the backing just as you needed it.

I would sew love to win your giveaway. I just might have the perfect project in mind for those lovely fabrics.

P.S. I would also love to hear more about finding vintage sheets. I went to oen local thrift store last week (it is right next to my son's school) and didn't see anything that clicked as good possibilities. I'd love to know what you look for when you shop for these. Thanks.

beaquilter said...

what a cute bundle, I'd love to win it, already follow your blog. how do you get the tabs at the top? is it just a layout thing?? I need to look into that

Rebecca Grace said...

What a fun project! I love the vintage look, and can't believe you did the whole thing from start to finish in just one weekend!

I'm getting close to the basting step for my 70" x 105" Drunkard's Path quilt, and I'm SO nervous about it. I went back and looked at your basting tutorial again and I'm pretty sure the last time I made a quilt this big I did it on the kitchen table, with clamps and working in sections from the center out (I didn't invent this method, I found it in a book). Anyway, both times I did it that way I ended up pulling the backing too tight and ultimately quilting in the ugly little pleats and tucks. My back is going to hate me, but I think I'm going to try it your way next time -- although that means I'm going to be crawling around on the hardwood floor of my foyer, since that's the only place I have a flat surface big enough to lay out this quilt! Wish me luck! :-)

Sadie said...

Summer in a quilt indeed :-) Now we just need a picnic, shades and a frisbee and we're off to the beach.
