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.
