Picnic Blanket Quilt at Market!

Amy FriendBasicGrey, pattern21 Comments

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to design a quilt pattern for BasicGrey for Moda.  This is it!  It’s called Picnic Blanket and it’s made with BasicGrey’s new release, PB&J.  It’s a fun line combining primary colors, florals, chevrons, stripes, grunge and alphabet prints.  I went with one of my favorite styles here for the pattern design–traditional with a twist in an organized scrappy layout! 
The quilt top above was made by me from the pattern and is currently off in some stage of being quilted, bound and photographed for the pattern cover.  The pattern will show layouts for four quilt sizes with cutting directions, piecing directions, etc.  Both the fabric and pattern will be shipping in March.  BasicGrey has told me that I can hold a pattern giveaway at that time.  

This is a shot just sent to me by Peg from Sew Fresh who is currently at Market.  It’s my design in the Moda booth!  I didn’t make that quilt, Moda did.  They shifted around some of the fabric choices too so it looks a bit different from mine but both show the lap sized quilt.  It’s so fun to see it there!

I hope you like it!  I will have a PB&J project tutorial on the BasicGrey blog in November and I believe that it will be combined with a PB&J fabric giveaway so stay tuned!
