For a quilt that not only keeps you warm or holds your place at the park but also helps tote your goodies to the game or picnic, try this great project I created for Bernina’s Sewing Republic. The entire how-to is available free for download on the Sewing Republic website. If you don’t want to take the time to create a quilt, you can also use a large piece of fleece as your blanket, or stitch the tote onto a pre-existing quilt. You can make the blanket as large or small as you like. If I was to make it again, I would use a water-resistant fabric for the quilt backing and bag. That way when I lay it down in the grass at the park, I won’t have to worry about damaging the quilt.
