I'm looking forward to seeing the quilting if those DMCs are going to be involved. Hand or machine I wonder.


So happy & summery! That red gingham is the perfect picnic fabric. I'm finishing up a half square triangle quilt this weekend - I can't get enough of them!


gorgeous quilt. so simple and lovely.


I love this..it is going to turn out great. So fresh and tantalizingly picnicky!


I love this. I love the simplicity of red and white.

wishes, true and kind

I love that you dropped everything to start the project! Yes, they absolutely did need to be married, and now the happy couple can always be together.

Your first picture drew me in right away and then the quilt! Simple and stunning altogether. Can't wait to see what you will do with those fun colorful yarn!


How perfect for summer. I can't wait to see how you quilt it!!!


what a great picnic quilt! I love how summery bright this is.


Great use of color and so like you. Love it, Penny. You rock!


Very fun Penny! I'll bet you'll have many a happy picnic with that quilt!

I feel the same way that you do about kits. I've only ever purchased a few, but they're still on my shelves. I've fallen victim to the fat quarter stacks lately, 'cause I just can't choose only a few prints in a line, but I tend to break them up when I get home and add them to my stash. I am hoping to use the kits that I have though -- I think they make good gifts when I need something quick and don't have the time for planning a quilt.

Happy Quilting!


Wow--hand quilting? So fun-- so ambitious. I have fabric for a happy picnic quilt my self and this might just work for me! If not, it can be the happy picnic quilt pillow for the same event!


looks beautiful! I just found out that rossie grew up in the town I live in. small world huh?


Very fresh!
; )


"Happy", indeed! You have such fantastic ideas! I can't wait to see the finished product.


Oh, I love it! I'll bring the basket filled with goodies and you bring the quilt!:) So fresh and pretty- perfect for a summer picnic!! Can't wait to see it finished!


I feel hungry for a picnic already. Thanks for sharing the inspiration quilt too. It was a beauty.

this makes me want to break out the picnicware and fry up some chicken!! love it.


Gosh I love this. Really. I'm the same way. I make a few quilts a year by patterns, but mostly not. I'm inspired by blogs and books though. I love this. Whenever I come to your blog I think "I wonder what Penny is up to." I'm never disappointed.


I love this!! I would love to have one just like it!


Love the scale, simplicity and of course fabric/color.
