beach blanket

the beach blanket is done !

i used some vintage sheets that i bought & a couple that i got in a vintage swap

plus several fat quarters that i got in a vintage sheet patchwork swap

this was my inspiration ~ i decided to make mine 4 fat quarters by 4 fat quarters. i had never made a quilt before, lots of tips & tricks were found here, here, here, here, & here
(for the batting i used bamboo batting)
it turned out HUGE (about 6 ft by 7 ft)

come with me to the beach...

i repurposed a vintage chenille bedspread (that i got from my mom) for the backing

summer is served :)

hope you have a sunny day !
