    I finished my new Table Centre for Christmas last evening - just ready for lunchtime tomorrow.
    It is a little different in construction, in that I appliqued the holly leaved, in gold lame, to my centre top, then put a layer of gold organza over the top of the other layers before quilting through everything (by hand).

    Thank you Loretta - I added the organza to tone down the lame, which was too bright for what I wanted.

    It's absolutely beautiful Lacelady. Seems almost a shame to cover up your lovely echo quilting with the candle! How far apart are your echo rows?

    That's so beautiful. Your table will look so elegant. I'd have to buy all new china to match!
