We needed a big placemat for picknicks. Not a quilt to sit on, but a mat to put on top of the blanket (we use a fleece-blanket for picknick).
I found some flower-fabric on a fair, bought some matching KONA-Cotton solids and started to sew.
During a trip to Holland I had bought the Logcabin-ruler of Marti Michell. This was the first time I used it. I had made my first Logcabin-Quilt (Matildas Quilt) like Harriet Hargrave had taught me — cut long stripes, sew them and trim after each step. With the ruler it’s much faster! And since I know to sew precisely (thanks to Harriet), all seams met each other.
But it was difficult to decide how to lay out the 15 blocks. I took pictures of the 5 options with my mobile, so the quality is not the best.
We chose the bias stripes.
The log-cabin-pattern offers a lot of possibilities to quilt it. For Matildas Quilt I chose the spidernet. This picknick-mat got the funny squares.
Let the next summer come!
