I talk to so many ladies who long yearned to piece a quilt and see it to completion, but found frustration and disappointment in their path. It breaks my heart. That is why I started teaching quilting and why the "Come Piece with Me" series came to be. Let's tackle quilting once skill, one project at a time; moving forward when we find confidence and completing instead of quitting.
Meet the 'Sunny Summer Picnic'; a simple quilt with plenty of personality. All we need is a jelly roll, our cleaned and set up sewing machines, and a little time each week to pull this project together. Simple straight lines will join us as we stretch toward cutting, squaring, and piecing large blocks. Random patterns help us relax a bit by masking any imperfections.
Join me next week with a jelly roll in your colors of choice. My has 20 strips each measuring 2 1/2" by 42" and making a 36" by 36" quilt top. Gather your fabric and come piece with me.
