    I like your Lemonaide Jar! I will be using a quilt for my beach trip! It is better than little beach towels. And they shake sand off nicely.

    Wow, beautiful beach day. LOL, A "quilter" would have done more then look. They probably would have stopped to admire and talk. Pretty quilt.

    Beautiful quilt! I would have had a shocked look on my face.......way to beautiful to be on sand! But you are right to use it.

    I would have put it on some drier sand, but hey it is your quilt and you do whatever you please with it my friend! It is very pretty!

    I'm cringing at the thought of it laying in salty sand! lol BUT, as you say, it was made to be used, not just to look at! It's very pretty.

    I love seeing quilts being used!!! All of our quilts get used to the max. Love the canning jar with lemonade. It's so pretty. Homemade lemonade is the best!!!

    Probably also because it was so nice and big...people probably thought--you were brave and yet what a good idea--sand does come out nicely in the wash, anyway.

    What was nice is tha the sand does not cling to it. I just threw it in the washer and dyer and looks great...the backing is white and it looks fine...My husband now says that is the beach blanket....I most likely would not put it on the grass outdoors since it is white and I do not want grass stains. Hmmm....I will have to make a scrappy for the backyard.
