Old School Patchwork

Now this is my type of patchwork.  Take pieces and bits of your favorite fabrics.  Some vintage napkins, an old shirt that you just can’t part with, maybe an old hankie and sew them all in there.  I have done this before with just plain squares, but I like this idea from wonderforest.  Pretty brilliant really, she sewed the little pieces together just made a point to keep the rows the same height.  You could back it with matelasse and wham! There is your beach blanket, which could turn to a lap warmer come fall.
