I decided to make a quilt out of some old jeans that were beyond repair and some red and white fabric. Not just any quilt, but a picnic quilt, complete with a strap for easy carrying. I chose a nice, lofty batting so it would be comfortable to sit on, and the jeans make it heavy and durable. Normally I don’t like jean fabric on anything but jeans, but I think it looks perfect as a picnic blanket! It measures about 5½ feet square. Nice and big so everyone has a place to sit!
