I have been collecting vintage sheets for a while now, with the idea that I could use them to make simple picnic quilts. I wanted to keep the piecing of the quilt tops simple enough that it wouldn’t make me too anxious to actually use them.
This quilt is big – 75″ x 75″, made up of 25 15″ blocks. This quilt is perfect for lying on the beach and has plenty of room for a lot of friends, but it is really big. Next time, I will definitely make the blocks smaller so the finished quilt is closer to 60″ square. That seems a more manageable size.
After I bind it, I am going to play around with making a carrier for it that involves velcro and a shoulder strap.
The yellows in the prints came out a little muted. Once this baby is finished, I will do a proper photo shoot outside.
