Picnic in the Rockies

This pattern is Avignon Picnic by Andrea Harris, which is a jelly roll quilt, but I didn't want a scrappy looking quilt and this quilt is for my sons bed...so I played with it on EQ7 and decided to go with solids.  Which resulted in a masculine quilt and lots of yummy space for quilting.


and, like it's hard to find a masculine jelly roll, its hard to find a masculine wide backing--most seem to have floral or scrolls--so I pieced a backing using solids....which turned out very nicely.  The backing is really the medium taupe color from the top...but it's washed out in this photo

QD wool batting.  So Fine and Bottom line threads.


  1. Fabulous grid work Michelle......love it!

  2. Your quilting absolutely makes a statement! Awesome! I found the pattern which is free on the Moda site. I am wondering if you would share what you did to covert it to solid colors rather than use the jelly roll. I would love to make one more planned rather than scrappy. Thanks very much ! wendyquilts at Hotmail (dot) com

  3. I really like the way this turned out. It is perfect for a guy.

  4. Ummm WOW!!! That is quite fabulous!!

  5. Oh, so beautiful. I saw your quilt somewhere else last week, I don't remember where I was. So nice to see it on it's original blog! Did you use different color threads on the top, but not the bottom? This one is on my to do list now!

  6. I would appreciate having this awesome pattern
