Pick Up Sticks is a fun pattern with lots of movement. You can easily imagine the modified pinwheels spinning around. The stripes form "windmill" blades that also "spin". The fabric inspiration for this quilt come from the Bold and Bright Collection of Batiks by Hoffman Fabrics. These fabrics will be available in the Fall of 2021.
While it is not required, I always suggest purchasing Batting Buddy 2-Piece Template Set. It can be found under Templates. The Batting Buddy 2-Piece Template Set makes cutting and assembly so much easier and with great results. The frame portion is used to cut the backing fabric. The inner square portion is used to cut out the batting. Use the frame again to perfectly center the batting in the middle of the backing. I use a walking foot with a 1/4" foot for block construction. Use the stitch-in-the-ditch foot for sewing blocks together and for sewing down the sashing. A zipper foot works okay.
