Picnic HOOP QUILT

Picnic Hoop Quilt
Here is the test run for HOOP QUILTS - using Cotton + Steel and a great yarn dyed linen from Robert Kaufman in the outer ring.  I had a charm pack of Melody Miller's Picnic line (from Quilty Box) and I wanted to use the charms to design a hoop pattern that could be adapted to different hoop sizes.  When I first wanted to sew a HOOP QUILT, I could see it in my mind, but wasn't sure how to sew it.

I had to test the piecing construction methods. To make sure it was something I could instruct people to sew, I decided to make this test run.  Isn't it beautiful?  As a pattern designer, it's important to me that my directions are clear and concise.  And since this is not a quilt, it would require a little more explanation than your normal quilt pattern.  I wanted to use patchwork basics to teach the fundamentals of making a mini into a HOOP QUILT.  And from there, I think people's imaginations can soar.  Not too shabby for a test, huh?

Once I made this sample, my mind raced with so many possibilities.  What will you make today?
