City Tiles Quilt_The Vintage Picnic Version

I was glancing around my house yesterday and realized I still have a handful of quilts I haven’t shared on the blog yet.   One of those quilts is my Vintage Picnic City Tiles Quilt.   I released this pattern a few months back and included instructions for an 18inch block and a 12inch block.   This Vintage Picnic version is the 12inch block option.

  • Emily - I love that quilting stitch, too! I used it a lot, until I got a new machine. Even though it has more bells and whistles than my old machine it doesn’t have that stitch! It has a ‘wave’ stitch instead, which produces a similar result. I still kinda miss that zig-zag, though.
    Love the quilt in these colors!ReplyCancel

    • Emily@QuiltyLove - I love that wave stitch too! My machine doesn’t have it :( That’s why I’ve settled on the zig zag :)ReplyCancel

  • Sharon Molde - Love these!ReplyCancel

  • Tara Bilbao - I LOVE that zig zag quilting. I am going to have to experiment with that one. I have been wanting to break out of the “straight stitch” quilting but am a bit nervous. That looks doable.

    I love your color combinations of all your quilts. So inspiring!ReplyCancel
