Rainbow Picnic Sew Along
I am really excited to try something new. This is a quilt along to make a picnic blanket. The new part for me is that it has a canvas back and no batting. I am curious to see how it will turn out.
I have my fabrics picked out for Rachel's Rainbow Picnic Sew Along. While I love her rainbow picnic blanket I didn't think it would go with the canvas I found in my closet. I have a few different pieces of canvas fabric that I normally use to cover my ironing board that were given to me several years ago. But only one of them was large enough to go on the back of my quilt.
And it is this light purple gingham fabric. I picked orange and teal to go with the shades of purple.
The squares are all cut and I am ready to get this quilt top laid out! If you'd like to see other's progress on their Rainbow Picnic Blanket, click here to go to Stitched in Color.
