We are outside multiple times a day. Sometimes the grass is a little bit damp, so I made a picnic quilt with a waterproof back. I used two floral prints that I’ve had in my stash or a long time. I used the triangle method and made a herringbone pattern. I LOVE herringbone. I do not love quilting though.

I used a vinyl tablecloth as the quilt back because it’s cheap and it’s waterproof. The tablecloth is kind of a bad quality and won’t last forever, but it’ll do for awhile. I haven’t washed it yet so hopefully it can stand up to being washed.

I used two floral fabrics that I’ve had in my stash for years, a black and white and a blue and ivory. They are okay together, not great. I didn’t want to buy any fabric for this quilt, and luckily, I had just enough to make it. You can see my impatience while quilting because there’s tucks and gathers all around the binding. Quilting requires too much perfection for me.
