I made this picnic quilt a LONG time ago.....15 years or more?
Picnics with the kids that are now grown,
and the kids that aren't grown -up yet,
(It kept me warm on those camping trips that
were colder than we expected!)
Cuddling in the car...
This quilt has lived in the car long time.
I remember it was an amish quilt.
These colors aren't amish.
This is the fabric I had.
That magazine really inspired me.
But, I still didn't make this quilt the RIGHT way.
This quilt also used scraps that I had.
I remember, I did have to buy the backing fabric.
Both quilts use a blanket for the batting.
Are you all cringing?
I quilted them very sparingly.
In other words,
But I love these quilts.
They're always available in our cars,
cushioning whatever I'm trying to put IN the car. :)
and all the others during this time period (ancient history).
Just rolled that backing around
and zig zagged the top!
