International Picnic Day + Instant Picnic Quilt

Instant Picnic Quilt!

Not to be confused with National Picnic Day in April, International Picnic Day is today, June 18! Pack yourself up a nice lunch and head out to the grass to enjoy an al fresco food fiesta. Of course, you’ll need a picnic blanket, and we’ve got one that’s easy and fun.

Picnic Quilts

This quilt is made from fat quarters. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a fat quarter is an 18″x22″ fabric rectangle, or a half yard of fabric cut in half widthwise. They’re sold as pre-cuts at the fabric store, or you can cut them yourself.

There are also solid color fat quarters that are perfect for adding embroidery. Our Good Eats collection is just the ticket for these blocks! You could also add hand embroidery if that’s more your style.

The best part of this quilt is that all the fabric, which is all Cotton + Steel basics from RJR, comes in a nifty kit that’s now on sale in our shop. And if you get the kit, the embroidery collection is included.

Happy picnicking!
