Gooseberry Picnic Quilt

In the beginning of this summer, I decided that I wanted to enjoy lots of family picnics this summer.  My girls love eating outside and sitting on top of a blanket on the ground has even more appeal to them then eating at a picnic table.  In the past we grabbed whatever crocheted blanket was around and took it with us.  But, I decided that a dedicated picnic blanket would be better for us.  And also I think it would make for special memories and nostalgia to use the same blanket every time we picnicked.  
We have 6 people in our family- my husband and I and our 4 kids.  So, I new this needed to be somewhat big so that we could all comfortably sit and enjoy a meal.  
I settled on Gooseberry by Lella Boutique for the fabric.  This fabric reminded me of my childhood and I think it is so, so beautiful. 
I thought over patterns for a while and ended up using this one.  The tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt Company was awesome to follow and I loved how April used layer cakes instead of charm…
