This is my first quilt.  I had my into to fibers class this past spring and I decided to make a picnic set with quilted blanket.  I had a LOT of problems, mostly cutting problems. I didn't have a rotary cutter, so I cut everything with scissors..which was awful, but a learning experience.  I ended up cutting a lot of corners and finished this all in a week.  I'm really glad I decided to do a quilt because I've found that I love quilting! I've started a new quilt since then and have spent much more time on it!
Anywho, I hope you like it!


this is the picnic set all together.  It comes with two pillows, an insulated bag lined with nylon, 3 reusable snack packs with an embroidered design on them, and two roll up place mats.





And this is my second quilt I am still working on! I was following the Oh Frannson! quilt sampler.
This is only the quilt top

Very nice!  I'm always a fan of picnic sets...  Must have watched too much yogie (sp?) bear as a child...

 I think you've done a great job- that complete set is pretty big and you did it in just a week?

And congrats on finding a new passion!

Very cool!  I like both of your projects.  I have seen a couple of picnic blankets on here recently and have been thinking that should be a project one of these days . . . I have quite a long list of things that should get done "someday" . . .  Great work!

Fantastic! I love the picnic set idea. Sorry you had to cut everything out with scizzors, must've been a huge chore. Anyway, I think you did an excellent job Smiley

Awesome!  That's the way to jump in to quilting!
You really have to get yourself a rotary cutter and a mat - you can usually get them on sale at the fabric stores or with 40-50% off coupons... you will never use scissors to cut straight lines again lol.

Your picnic set looks fabulous Smiley

That's a terrific first quilt!  Your other pieces are great too, what a nice picnic set.  I like your new sampler top too.  I think you're already addicted!
