So, maybe its the weather, but I’ve been slacking a little on the “making stuff” part of my life. And that makes me pretty sad. I’ve been wanting to make a picnic blanket for awhile now and I’ve decided it will be my next project. Some of my favorite Spring/Summer memories involve lying around at the park or beach, snacking and enjoying gorgeous weather – but our picnic blanket is typically an old bedsheet or tablecloth. This isn’t bad, but a cute one would be even better! My homemade blanket will consist of muted pastels in simple patterns, all thrown together into a checked quilt pattern. I have yards of plain fabric, so my first step will be finding time to paint it all!
