#ParkBenchQuilt Block 1 - Picnic

Early this year, my latest Block of the Month (BOM) design, Park Bench, hit stores. I named each of the blocks for favorite memories and moments in parks. Block 1 is Picnic. The clean, uncomplicated layout of this block reminds of the best picnics, a few favorite foods enjoyed with a favorite person on a beautiful day.

I've been collecting pictures of blocks as quilters have been sharing them on Instagram. I love seeing your blocks come together and which fabrics you select to make your blocks.

Are you in a Park Bench BOM group or shop program? Working on a Park Bench quilt on your own?
Post pictures of your blocks, top and finished quilt using #ParkBenchQuilt and you might find your handy work featured in a future blog post.

Do you have a favorite picnic in a park moment?
Tell us about your favorite BOM or picnic in the park moments in the comments!

Thank you for including my pic! I am loving this project. Making each block has really upped my piecing accuracy. When I look at my recent blocks compared to the first ones...yikes! I can really see the improvements!
