Enjoy the summer sun in absolute comfort with an Sunburst Picnic Blanket to rest on. Instead of having to spend hours making quilt blocks, you can use a method similar to string quilting with long pieces of fabric that look just like bursts of sunlight. Bringing the brightness and warmth of the sun to quilts with summer themes has never been easier. The whole family can enjoy an afternoon picnic on one of your best looking modern quilt patterns yet. It even rolls up so travel and storage are even easier.

I can't wait until it is nice enough to have a picnic, I'm going to make this blanket so I'm ready!

This looks like a very quick and easy project. I like it!

Fantastic, Thank you. I just can't wear the color yellow but love it, this is great; I have a picnic blanket from store structured like this and was thinking of making one, you helped jump start the project.
