Picnic at the Fairgrounds {a finished quilt!!}

So, this might be my new favorite 🙂  Say hello to Picnic at the Fairgrounds…

I love absolutely everything about this quilt.

I just knew that the combination of Camille Roskelley’s Cheerio quilt pattern and Denyse Schmidt’s Picnic and Fairground fabric would be perfection…and I am not at all disappointed.

I also love this quilt because I finally pushed past my fear of straight line quilting on the longarm.  Now I wonder, why did I wait so long to try this?!?!  I LOVE the look and texture of straight line quilting.  I will never push a big quilt through my little Bernina again to do it 🙂 And don’t my flowers look so great with the quilt too?

The red dot binding is a happy touch and really does make me think of summertime, picnics and fairgrounds.

The backing fabric is another DS Quilts print that I picked up at JoAnn’s from her Sweet Ruby line.  It is still in most shops if you are interested.  The red, white and blue print is a perfect patriotic touch to this summer quilt.

And one more picture, just because I couldn’t help myself.

Thanks for stopping by and I’m happy to have a finish in the #mypreciousqal hosted by Kelly on Instagram.

  1. Wow! This turned out great! Did you use channel locks to long arm quilt it or rulers? You’ve inspired me to try this. Thanks!
