Last year I made a Christmas quilt with a vintage tablecloth.
It might seem early to be thinking about what to make this year but I found another vintage Christmas tablecloth and I couldn’t pass it up.
I will need to find some gold fabric for a border, and I think gold thread for the quilting. I think I will do a grid pattern in the majority of the quilt, and quilt around the trees and swags.
Teddy tested it out and he approves. (he looks good with red)
It will be a while before I get started on it but I am glad I got the tablecloth when I saw it…I think it will make a great quilt.
I got a bit more work done on the suspension bridge quilt. I did a bit of the quilting in the sashing and the cornerstones. In keeping with the plan for the rest of the quilting I am not doing anything fussy….just doing a free hand design. I did a vine in the sashing and a flower in the cornerstone….just freeform quilting….(click pictures to enlarge)
