Pattern Details

This is on sale for the month of October. It will either be discontinued on November 1st or it will revert to full price. It's summertime! Pack a picnic basket with all your favorite summer treats and head to the park or the beach for a day of sun, fun, and yummy goodies. Be prepared, though. The outdoors is home to all kinds of critters, including those very tiny, uninvited guests, the ants, who always show up to partake in the food. If you'd rather stay indoors, you can still enjoy a colorful picnic on your wall. The ants designed for this wall hanging are so small, that they may be overlooked at first glance. They provide an element of surprise that makes us look again and laugh. This is your picnic, though, so you have a choice about whether or not you want to include the insects. The wall hanging is only 20" x 24", so it goes together quite quickly. The appliques are made with fusible web and a bit of machine zigzag stitching to hold them in place. The ants can be hand embroidered or drawn with a fine tipped marker. Add a border of simple half square triangle patches, pop a couple of buttons onto the picnic basket, and the quilt is done. Please contact me if you come across any questions or snags while using this pattern. I’ll be happy to help in any way I can.

When I retired from a lifetime of teaching in 2007, I was worried that I'd quickly get bored. That concern didn't last long at all. I was thrilled to discover that there really is life outside of the classroom. I spend parts of most of my days indulging in my favorite hobbies of quilting and sewing. I started designing patterns as an experiment, and no one was more surprised than I was to find that other people liked my little designs. I'm a teacher at heart, so I do try to write my patterns in such a way that beginning quilters can follow them. I include lots of details, photos, and little informative notes. I make myself easily available to my customers, and I respond to all questions as quickly and as thoroughly as I can.
