    You did what? You took that beautiful quilt to the beach? Actually, if it felt right to you, and if that is what you made it for, good for you that you made a bright spot on the beach where you could relax and enjoy your lemonade.

    What a beautiful picture. Where are you? Beautiful quilt too. I agree, quilts are made to be used.

    I can't wait to see what kind of looks I get when I use the stash of vintage Lilly Pulitzer squares my friend gave me for a picnic blanket!

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    We are less than 2 hours from the beach and haven't been there in a couple of years! Time to plan a trip. I'm not sure I'd put a quilt as pretty as yours down on our beaches because there's a chance of it picking up tar, but it's an inspiration to see, in any case. Thanks for sharing the picture.

    Here's a hint for anyone who hasn't experience beach tar: Take baby oil. It does a great job of removing it from your feet.

    I took a handmade quilt to the beach once and never could get the sand out of the seams! Never did it again, though I HAVE taken them to the pool -on the grass, not sand!

    Depending on what part of the country you are in, the lookers may have thought the lemonade was good old fashioned moonshine lol. In my neck of the woods mason jars =moonshine lol. Beautiful photo and beautiful quilt looks like something out of a country living magazine

    Here's an idea to add to your beach quilt: Fold it from edge to center, from both sides and then from top and bottom. Repeat if not yet small enough of a rectangle to "carry". Now mark along the edge of the sides opposite from the very last fold, and attach a "handle" on each edge. (Make a long rectangle, maybe 10 inches long, an inch wide, and sew each end of it through all the layers of your blanket.) Now you can carry it by the handles! (they will be on the underside of the blanket when you lay it out, and not bulky enough to bother you when you lay on it) My kids and I have worn out the one I made years ago -- maybe I should do a "makeover" on that one too!!!

    Looks like fun! I must admit that I've given my fair share of "dirty looks" when I see people using a quilt in a place where it might get dirty - it's true though that they're made to be used! I hope the seagulls didn't use it for "target practice"!!!
