Patchwork Quilt

Happy New Year everyone! I can't believe January is almost over and it's been more than a month since my last post. I've been busy at work so I haven't done much sewing since the year started. We have also been hit with some really cold weather and cold weather makes me lazy. On weekends, all I want to do is hang out in my pajamas and watch TV. 

Last December, I was able to finish my patchwork quilt top using this tutorial from Jeni Baker's blog, In Color Order. I love Jeni's blog because she has some wonderful projects and tutorials that she shares with her readers. 

This quilt is pretty big measuring at 68" x 72". It is designed to be a picnic quilt for those lazy summer days when you just want to take a nap under a shady tree.
Sorry, I didn't have time to iron my quilt before taking the photos. 
I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. 

I plan to finish this quilt before summer...just in time for picnic season. I promise to post photos once I'm done. 

Have a great week everyone. 

Until next time. 


  1. That is a lovely big piece of work, Virna! Roll on summer and picnics!

  2. Hi Virna!
    This is a lovely patchwork blanket. The colours remind me of sunny, happy days. It will be perfect for summer picnics. Well done!
    I'm planning to make a patchwork blanket this spring--will be emailing you for tips and advice!
    Hope you're having a lovely week!
