Quilted Tablecloth

Here is a totally new kind of project for me – quilting a table linen. In this case it’s a tablecloth. It’s only about 30″ square so it’s like for a card table. I had so much fun designing the quilting and then actually quilting it.

Here’s a picture of the finished tablecloth.

Here are a couple more detailed photos.

And since white thread on a white background is hard to see, here’s a picture of the back.

If you have a special linen – tablecloth, dresser runner, embroidered hankie (washed of course!) or doily, this is a great to preserve them. If the finished piece is small, it can also be framed! I mean what can I say – I don’t decorate my house with embroidered linens, do you? So what will you do with all those handed down linens from your mother, grandmother, or great grandmother?

I've been quilting for over 20 years and love every part of it. I now have a long arm quilting machine and would like to quilt your quilts for you.
