My family goes through a lot of jeans and after they have been mended and mended they are too ratty to give away so I have been cutting them in strips and weaving them into rugs, mats and table runners, but I still have many left. Your quilted picnic cloth beautiful and looks sturdy. I'm going to try that next. Thanks for sharing your idea.
