This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are sewing up the Picnic block. This simple block is perfect for large-scale prints, and all your scraps. Follow along as I continue designing and sharing a new block pattern each week!


Simple patchwork is always a winner in my book. A big bonus — the simplicity of this block lends itself to a great scrappy outcome too! Scrappy quilts always make me smile – they seem to have the most movement and energy to them. In addition, they use up those precious fabrics that you don’t want to part with.

I hope you take a couple of minutes to watch the video for my construction tips. Also, I share pressing tips for a single-block layout. I always love putting the different layout ideas together, and I’m looking forward to sewing a couple of quilt tops this winter too.

This week the Picnic block is free, next week it will be available for purchase in my shop. 

Pin now, sew later

Save to your favorite quilting boards for inspiration when you need it!

I hope you have a creative week!


PS – I’d love for you to share this post with your online quilting friends!
