Do you ever get an idea in your head that you just have to make? Such was the case on Saturday, so I set about digging through my stash and scraps for anything low volume. I wanted to make a simple picnic quilt with fabrics that would depict what a person might see or do while on a picnic. A quilt where little wanderers could sit and eat their lunch after chasing bugs and gathering flowers.
There might be a little fishing,
perhaps some reading,
someone may bring cake...........
and where there is cake.............
How is it that darling daughter always rolls out of bed just in time to accompany me on a photo shoot?
She tested it.
While sewing this, I was thinking of a family this may go to but first I will e-mail and find out if they are interested : )
low volume stash fabrics
9" blocks with a few 4-patches thrown in
54 x 63
binding is 'textures' in light grey
What a lovely idea - so pretty, and would certainly amuse children for a while too.
Beautiful! You've chosen a lovely selection of fabrics and they will provide a conversation piece for the picnic too :)
What a great idea and such a lovely quilt!!!
Very nice! Like your fabric choices.
Great idea you had there Carla! Who wouldn't want it?? It's going away for sure!
Great idea Carla!
Hi! Your new quilt has so sweet and soft look! How beautiful among all the full coloured quilts! x Teje
Simple and sweet. I love the color combo, as always. I want to relax just looking at it...
How wonderfully refreshing! It would be a very fussy person who wouldn't say yes to this beautiful quilt!
Great idea to use up some of those scraps you have hanging around!
Very pretty quilt, and I love that you have thought carefully about every piece of fabric that has gone into it.
Kinda, I love it. I have a couple of "picnic" quilts that we use all the time. I am sure the recipients will love it to bits!!!
That is beautiful! Love the idea!!
What a great idea. I wish I had some of your creativity--you make the coolest things!
Soothing and lovely quilt.
So many fun fabrics to look at! Love the ants! Great quilt Carla.

OOooooohhhh - Aaaaaaaahhhh! I'm usually a bright colors kind of gal, but this is a perfect picnic quilt - love it!!!
What a great quilt. I so want to make a low volume quilt. Maybe this winter when the landscape is low volume.
Gasp! What a gorgeous quilt. I love, love, love it. How brilliantly you've woven the picnic theme into it, portraying the whimsical magic of those carefree outdoor mealtimes. PERFECT.
I LOVE it! Just beautiful.
It's gorgeous. Low volume fabrics have a way of being very endearing. Your choice of design works so well.
oh how fun!!!
so pretty. kind of like an eye spy quilt.
Such a pretty and whimsical quilt, Carla. It would be a joy to picnic on this one!
Your low volume quilt is beautiful...very restful...I have thought about making one of these, but all my fabric is bold, bright and full of saturated color...I have absolutely no lights or pale colors anywhere in my stash! Guess I will keep admiring those who make these lovely quilts.
I am loving your aesthetic! SCRAPPY!
