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?
