I used a vinyl tablecloth as the quilt back because it’s cheap and it’s waterproof. The tablecloth is kind of a bad quality and won’t last forever, but it’ll do for awhile. I haven’t washed it yet so hopefully it can stand up to being washed.
I used two floral fabrics that I’ve had in my stash for years, a black and white and a blue and ivory. They are okay together, not great. I didn’t want to buy any fabric for this quilt, and luckily, I had just enough to make it. You can see my impatience while quilting because there’s tucks and gathers all around the binding. Quilting requires too much perfection for me. This waterproof picnic quilt is more about utility than show.
