On My Way Picnic Plaid Quilt

On My Way Picnic Plaid Quilt

This was a really fun and pretty darn easy quilt to make. It's called Picnic Plaid and the pattern just one of many cool projects, from Anna Graham's Handmade Style book. This is the quilt I was working on when I got that nasty cold that everyone seemed to be passing around a few weeks ago, when I learned that my sickness and pregnancy-induced insomnia can be quite helpful in increasing my quilting productivity.

I used one of our On My Way Fat Quarter Bundles along with two of Robert Kaufman's Kona Solids to make this lap sized version. My mom is actually making a baby size version of this for my little nugget arriving in November -- I promise to share that quilt, too, when she's all finished.

I loved my color choices when I was working on it but now am second guessing the blue-ish background color since it's now showing up with more-than-I'd-like green tones in this photo. But, I'm going to hold out on a final judgment until it's sandwiched with the batting and backing and quilting. Quilting can really change how you see a project, don't you think? Plus, there isn't as much light shining through the fabrics which allow you to see them better. 

If you like Anna Graham of Noodlehead's patterns and style just as much as I do and love a good sewing pattern book with a mix of bags, quilts, garments, and home goods, then I bet you'll love her book Handmade Style which is available for purchase here.

And, you can find yardage and fat quarter bundles of Dear Stella's On My Way fabrics right here!
