12. Quilt the layers together around the ovals or in a pattern of your choice.

13. Trim the batting so it extends 2 inches beyond the top on all sides—but don’t cut the backing!

14. To make the borders and miter the corners, press under 1/4 inch along the outer edges of the backing. Turn up the backing at each corner. 


Turn up the corners of the border.

15. Fold the backing up over the batting to form a hem and create miters at the corners. Stitch through all thicknesses along the inner fold.


Turn up the hem and form the miter.

Spread out your picnic and enjoy!


Enjoy your picnic for two!
