Wordless Wednesday (Well, Almost)


80 blocks and fantastic fabric...finished and ready to be quilted!  Fabric: Central Park by Kate Spain. Pattern: "Picnic" from Scrap-Basket Sensations: More Great Quilts from 2 1/2" Strips (That Patchwork Place) by Kim Brackett. I ♥ this quilt! (Wouldn't it be great in Christmas scraps...Kim suggests that in her book...Flurry or Grace maybe?)!

P.S. This is my third Central Park quilt...but the first one that gets to stay home with me...the other two are being published and won't be back for a while!

This is really pretty!

I love central park - I had to limit myself to one quilt from this fabric. But I did get 2 fqs and a charm pack, with which I can make other smaller projects as a consolation :)

LOVE this!

Love your quilt and Central Park fabric. I bought a FQ bunch but I've been saving it...haven't been able to cut into it yet, but this pattern might be a good one for it. What did you use for the white? Kona cotton -97 or -98?

I went through my Scrap-Basket Sensation book today and admired the Picnic quilt once again.
What a lovely version, Sherri! How nice, that you get to stay warm under this one!

I just love this pattern. As a matter of fact, I like all the quilts in Kim's new book. Can't wait to make one myself.

It's so beautiful! I bought some central park yardage with my birthday gift voucher from the fat quarter shop, in the bluey and lilac colourways, I can't wait to use them!

I told Kim how fun it would be when we started seeing Scrap-Basket Sensations quilts start popping up in Blogland and I was right!! Your quilt is wonderful. So glad it's going to live at home with you LOL!
