Our Outside Blanket

We've reached the point in the year where the weather is beautiful when it's not raining. It leaves the ground too wet to just play in the grass and Max seems to have a contact allergy to grass like his Mama. So I went in search of an Outside Blanket. Qualifications for this blanket were many and I thought I might have to try my hand at quilting just to get what I want, but I found the perfect blanket and it's been a recycled joy to me the past few days.

The quilt is the perfect size (twin) and the perfect weight (thick enough to keep us from getting soggy). It's beautiful (who doesn't love purple and white together and has a special meaning. The quilt was given to me as a high school graduation present. It was made by Peggy, she was my boss at the coffee shop where I worked, my mentor, my friend, and like a mom to me. It was on my bed throughout most of college and has since been packed away. I found it while organizing the other day and wondered what I would do with it. This is the perfect solution.
