A creative friend of mine recently made a very fun quilted beach blanket. The same friend (who is also very generous) gave me some of her sheets when she was decluttering.
I knew I wanted to make a beach blanket with them as soon as I saw them and seeing her blanket motivated me to get going. I decided not to use the sheet with the purple flowers after all but found this perfect sheet with bold stripes at a thrift store.
Trying to decide how to arrange them.
Hmmmm...some help from the boys.
I got the blocks sewn together, the lining and backing on and now I just need to finish making a binding for it. Looking forward to trying it out at the beach...I guess if I ever stayed home from the beach I might get a little more sewing time in. ;-)
