Wicked Easy Picnic Quilt Top in Blue

I finished this quilt top recently. I've been wanting to do a scrappy / fat-quarter quilt. I'm really happy with the way this one turned out. I plan to use this pattern again in future. When I get this one quilted and finished, I plan to use it for picnics. It may be the quilt that stays in the car.

The pattern is Annie's Wicked Easy Quilt by Annie Unrein. It's similar to a Yellow Brick Road, but not quite the same. There's something I like about Annie's pattern just a little better. The pieces came together very quickly and esily. No agonizing over what to put where on the design wall. I just made sure that no 2 same fabrics were next to each other as I pieced the blocks. Then I put the blocks on the design wall and agonized ...

The fabric is the Blue Scrap Bag from Keepsake Quilting -- plus a few extra fat quarters from my stash.

Your quilts are just stunning! I have been looking for the "wicked easy" quilt all over the internet. Seems the link no longer works. I found one called "wickedly easy" but it is pieced differently. If you know where I can find it, or you have the cutting measurements, I would so appreciate it.

I have emailed Annie (the creator) several times and gotten no response. For some reason she doesn't want this quilt pattern out there anymore. She removed it from her website. So I will respect her wishes.

There are many similar patterns (Yellow Brick Road, Sweet 16, Turning 20). I suggest you use one of those. Sorry I can't be of more help on this one.
