Beach Blanket

Dacia's Beach Blanket Pattern

I’ve posted the pattern for the beach blanket, just click on the image above for the sizing. It doesn’t provide specific, step-by-step instructions–you will need some experience in making quilts to figure it out. I use muslin on the back of mine, because it’s inexpensive and holds up pretty well on dirty ground. Plus, I don’t care if it gets gross, since it’s not a pretty fabric. I attached a tie to mine at the lower, right-hand side so that I can wrap it around the blanket once it’s folded to keep it compact. One thing I wished I would have done to my blanket is added a pocket, which is the red outline at the bottom. The 16″ by 16″ measurement is the unfinished size–you’ll want to finish the edges on all sides before attaching it. It should be about 13″ by 13″. This quilt is finished by tying embroidery floss at about 5″ intervals. I used six different fabrics in mine, which I think provides a nice balance. You’ll want about 5 yards of 45″-wide fabric total for the top side and 2.5 yards of 55″-wide muslin for the back (these measurements do not include fabric for binding. I suggest you buy it for an easier project. You’ll need 8 yards of quilt binding.) Let me know how the pattern works out for you, if you try it.
