Preparing for a Picnic

Back in March I purchased this fat eighth bundle of Little Apples by Aneela Hoey for Moda. I had been eyeing this fabric for awhile and got a really good deal on this bundle. I have known for awhile that this fabric would be perfect for a picnic blanket and I have been on the lookout for the perfect pattern to use. 
On a trip to Joann last month I picked up a Quilts and More magazine while in the checkout line. I was so surprised when I got the magazine home and found this pattern by Aneela Hoey for a picnic blanket made with Little Apples fabric!!! This was meant to be!
I cut the fabric for the quilt and fussy cut some squares for the first time. I have so many projects to finish before I can begin to sew this one together.
