When I make a quilt I like to reflect on how I feel about the fabrics when the quilt is finished. Before I started this project I really liked this collection and now that I am done I really love it. I know that people love her typewriters, but this is definitely my favorite Melody Miller collection.
There are a couple of Cottton + Steel basics mixed in with the Picnic prints and the solid fabric is Kona Bone. It is white, but just a little vintage-y.
The backing is the blue picnic baskets print. I love all of the detail that was put into the baskets and bowls, especially the green basket with the flowers on it.
For the quilting I did crosshatching to echo along the seam lines. I really like how it made a mix of squares and rectangles and it kind of reminds me of a basketweave pattern.
Finished size: 60" x 80"
