A Beach Quilt

A Beach Quilt, well that is what I am calling this quilt. Nope, we do not live near a beach!  
This quilt will be used outside.  
I see it under a tree with the grandchildren, a pile of books, and snacks.
I see it wrapped around us when we are outside watching a sporting event.
I see it on the grass to watch the 4th of July Fireworks.
I see it always in the car ready for anything!

I have been collecting fabrics for this quilt for about a year.

One yard of each of the 15 prints. You know one print had to be pink!

I cut them into 6.5 inch squares. (lazy, the width of my ruler)!

Total squares, Hmm, 450!

Sooo, I am making two of these quilts.

Here is the layout for the blocks.  

I have changed the layout since this picture was taken, that was a mistake, but, oh well!

I like to sew in sections, so I am making them until I think the quilts are large enough.

One for everywhere, and one for the beach?  A girl can dream, right?

Eww, there was a possum in our backyard eating the remains of our snowman!  

Have a wonderful weekend. I hope you do something you love.
