Picnic Essentials - 2 in 1 Tablecloth

Project by Michelle Roberts AKA Creative Blonde

Follow my tutorial to make your very own 2 in 1 tablecloth. This table cloth is perfect for a picnic bench cloth and as a picnic blanket.

To create this napkins I'm using the brand new collection British Waterways designed by Sarah Payne.

Be sure to check out my 3 in 1 Napkin tutorial, which can also be used for a cutlery wrap and placemat.

To make this tablecloth, cut four green squares measuring 9 ½”, six kingfisher squares measuring the same and six flower squares (I centralised the kingfisher in the centre of the square)

Making a total of 16 squares (finished tablecloth measure 36” square)

Begin sewing the squares together using ¼” seam allowance, as shown below.

Once you have four rows, sew the rows together, nesting the seams as you go.

Cut a piece of Hobbs white bleached batting measuring 38” x 38”

( this is perfect when working with white fabric).

I used Island batik ‘Snow’ fabric for the backing (38” x 38”).

Sandwich the wadding between the top and backing piece of fabric.

Quilt using your preferred method.

Trim edges.

Cut 4 strips from the green fabric, each measuring 1 ¼” x 40”

Join each strip together to make your binding.

Sew with RST the binding strip and the edge of the quilt.

Press over ¼” of the raw edge, and hand sew to the reverse of the cloth.

Your tablecloth/picnic blanket is picnic ready.
