Patchwork Picnic Sew Along

Today I'm joining the sew-along for my fellow Riley Blake designer Gracey Larson's new book 'Patchwork Picnic', published by Martingale. This is a super fun book containing 30 'outdoor inspired' blocks, each coming in two different sizes - 6" and 12". You can create a fun sampler quilt featuring all 30 blocks, or just choose your favourite block and turn it into one of the seven companion projects!

I chose the acorn block and turned it into a potholder - which was one of the seven projects included in the book. This sweet pot holder will make a lovely thank you gift for a dear friend who has been a pillar of support for me during the last two weeks after my mum's passing. My friends, family, and of course my beloved sewing machine have all been great sources of comfort for me during this tough time. Sewing really is the best form of therapy!

The Patchwork Picnic sew along is currently taking place on Instagram - follow the hashtag #patchworkpicnicsal and join in on the fun!
