Picnic String Quilt

I finally finished this quilt!!! It has taken me a long time and the only reason for that is I just could not find a way to quilt it to my liking.

Picnic String Quilt


I tried 4 different patterns and each time I un-picked it and started over.

I finally decided on diagonal lines and it was a pain to quilt it since my walking foot guide only stays on one side so I had a hard time quilting it with all of the quilt bunched up in the throat of the sewing machine.

I LOVE LOVE the apples as the binding. Thanks Erin for giving me some of yours I would not have had enough. The apples are from Sandi Henderson's Farmers Market one of my favorite lines.

The quilt measures 58"x 58" so it is a good size for a picnic and taking to the park.

Thanks so much to my Sew Connected 3 group for helping me to make this awesome quilt! I am just sorry it took so long to make.
