The Picnic Plaid quilt pattern is now in the shop! This quilt pattern is a twist on the traditional Granny's Square block; it's unique in that it's completely strip pieced with very few bias edges to work with. That's a win! Plus, every other block is an outline of the Granny's Square block which lends to the plaid-look of the design.
This design works with so many fabric styles from farmhouse to modern. I'm loving the farmhouse look of the fabrics in this quilt.
Forget Me Not by Allison Harris
How gorgeous is the fabric collection Forget Me Not by Allison Glass for Windham Fabrics! The saturated colors and variety of prints lend to a farmhouse theme, and the splash of orange on navy is perfect for the Picnic Plaid quilt pattern.
Because Forget Me Not has very few really light or really dark prints, this collection works perfectly for both a light and a dark background fabric.
The background in this quilt is a Tiny Marks print in Navy from the Hudson collection by Windham Fabrics.

The quilting design on this quilt is Ribbon Curls, done on my Handi Quilter Fusion with Pro Stitcher in navy thread. I like to use roundish designs on quilts that have a lot of angled pieces, to softn all of the straight edges.
The backing is Mix in Navy by Timeless Treasures, available right here in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.
The binding is the Tiny Marks in Navy found on the quilt front.
This quilt top was made by Joanne, one of my professional sewists, and quilted and bound by me.
