Welcome to the Quilting Board!
My dd has asked me about making them a picnic quilt for the coming summer. This is a great time to see your post. Thanks for sharing.
Can you machine wash and line dry if necessary?
washing...I was wondering that my self...I have seen several answers - some say yes and others say to handwash and hang dry....I was thinking this would be great for the beach...I always take a quilt to the beach...you should see the stares..LOL...
Thanks for the link!
I did find this about cleaning oilcloth:
You can wipe oilcloth clean using a warm, soapy sponge then dry it off with a soft cloth. Machine washing is not suggested. Store folded or rolled. Any creases from folding will smooth out over time-- faster in a warm environment. If you want to speed the process up you could use the steam setting on an iron with a pressing cloth between the iron and the oilcloth (DO NOT TOUCH THE IRON TO THE OILCLOTH).
