I like to make quilts! Like, really… I do! But only if the quilt top can be completed in less than a weekend. I prefer to take 5-7 hours to complete a quilt top. If you’ve seen the patterns that are out there I’m sure you know there are very few quilts that can be completed that quickly.
It is the ideal beginner project because all you have to cut are squares and strips and a few stars to (fusible) applique on. This can easily be whipped up in a weekend…. and if you’re anything like me you can bust out this quilt top in about 5 or 6 hours! Now that’s my kind of quilt!
p.s.- It’s only March… you have plenty of time to make your own Starry Picnic quilt in time for a sunny outdoor Fourth of July picnic. I like to use a lightweight (4-5 oz) denim for my picnic quilts. You should try it!
