Labor Day weekend is just days away, but I finished the picnic quilt! It is a little over 70x70 and nicely crinkled with stipples. If you're wondering about my template dimensions, you'll find them back in this post.
Pretty package all tied up
The fabric on the back is all found home decor - Pottery Barn Kids and Eddie Bauer window treatments that cost me $5 in total. I thought the heavy weight would be helpful on damp ground.
The Pottery Barn treatments included these long ties. I simply attached two under my binding to make the blanket easier to carry and stash in the van.
Speaking of binding, this is a fun bandanna-type print that looked very picnic-y to me. A departure from my standard stripe! I love a crisp binding edge.
I had to point out these ants. Perfect for the picnic.
Yes, we really will use it on the ground. And even eat on it! As my friend would suggest, get a good mess on it right away, then you won't even worry about it any more. I'm sure the boys will be able to think of something.
