I drafted every one of the blocks from the book so they could be paper pieced and added nine extra to get to 120 (so 10 x12) to be large enough for my king bed. I machine quilted it in "sections" so I could manage it with my regular machine. Took quite a long time, but finally got it done.
We are all aware of this virus thats spreading and holding us basically hostage. Watching Jenny's crumb quilt tutorial gave me some release on how we are all feeling, crummy. And it doesn't hurt to help with the stock pile of scraps that need purging. I also used some UFO's from tops that are already finished and needed a home. Goodness. So that said....Stitch a crumb quilt to share how your dealing with the stay at home orders. Pass it on.

I am super excited to introduce Picket Fence to you! She is the second in my budding line of quilt patterns! Picket Fence is a versatile pattern that looks great in many fabric collections! Sweet pastels or bold, masculine prints are perfect for Picket Fence. The cover quilt is lap size in PB&J by Basic Grey. The pink, yellow and green version is the original Picket Fence in Spring quilt from 2012, making it up as I sewed. This quilt is the reason I named the pattern Picket Fence; it reminded me of a white picket fence on a lovely spring day, thus the name, Picket Fence in Spring. Recently I was asked about the pattern through my Etsy shop, and I decided it was time to write it! This pattern is layer cake friendly and comes with instructions for six sizes from wall hanging to king! The pattern includes fabric requirements for using layer cake squares or yardage. It also includes mock-ups of all sizes in various fabric collections so you can see what each size looks like when finished.
