It's summer sewalong time, and the designers at Ruby Star Society are offering some fresh quilty fun with a buffalo-check inspired throw! The beginner friendly Perfect Picnic pattern is a great way to play with fabric values. It's also perfect for a summer quilt, finishing at 67 1/2" square.
To make it even more stress-free, we've come up with two original palettes for you. "Dude Ranch" is a burly blend of blues and caramel, and "Boysenberry Buckle" is bubbling with sweet berry tones that are just off the beaten path.
Each kit includes 1 1/4 yards light-toned fabric, 1 1/8 yards dark, 10 medium fat quarters, and 5/8 yards binding.
What else will you need?

4 1/4 yards backing (Might we suggest Tarrytown Gardens or Watermelon for Boysenberry Buckle, and some PLEAE use Outdoorsy Postcards for the Dudes! Gridlock would also be great, and if you use Moonglow 108" you only need 2 yards.)
