    Christmas Table Quilt

    Yes, I have started making quilts for my table! Like most of you I have bed fulls of quilts that never see much use but I still love making them. I give many away but still like some keepers for my own family. With poly batting and machine stitched with washability in mind these seem to be a solution for me. I am going to start Easter/Spring after the holidays!

    My son recently asked if it was a trend he had missed which cracked me up. Then when I said I didnít have to make more ( I made a Fall themed one and Birthday already this fall) he decided to help plan one. As requested I have moose, gnomes, and trees. My young adults love it and have became comfortable eating on them finally. It took awhile for it to sink in They I want to use these quilts and wash them.......really messy meals we do take them off!

    I used free patterns from SewFreshQuilts my Santa Gnome was a free pattern from Simple Simon and Co., the trees are my own.

    Very cute! Get a large piece of the clear tablecloth plastic from Walmart and it can stay on for even messy meals.

    I love this idea. Have always wanted to use on the table too, but need to get some clear plastic to relax about them. ;-)

    I really like that. It is perfect for your table, this is the first one I have seen that really appeals to me as a table quilt. Great job.

    The clear plastic is a great idea! Thank you!

    The octagon shape was a challenge but by the Christmas one I learned to figure out the center and working out from there, itís fun. I am finally going to get to use some of my fun blocks that I keep saving but donít want to turn into a quilt by themselves. Itís fun piecing things together!

    I will post a picture of my Fall Table quilt so you can see the improvement in concept as soon as the website lets me.

    I bought some fabric for the Spring one last night, tiny pink flowers and green on cream. I might change it but as long as the bunnies are chocolate and I use lots of tulips I think it will be cute!

    My upload keeps failing, any ideas why? I have done two photos already today......have I reached a limit?

    All the table topper needs to make it complete is a plate of freshly baked cookies. Merry Christmas!

    Here is the Fall Table Quilt. Combination SewFreshQuilts, Elizabeth Hartman, and pretty common free patterns.

    This one has a really dark background that I ended up not liking but came through a month on the table in great shape. I even spilled raspberries on it!

    Love it! A great use for quilts. Shall we call them QOT? Quilts on table?

    I have fabrics to make a fun Christmas one but not enough time. Perhaps I can try for an Easter one.

    I used the packaged Mountain Mist brand fwiw, very thin so I think that would be low loft.

    QOT, great acronym! Seriously, I have gotten more enjoyment out of my finished QOT’s then most of my finished quilts. I get to see it out on the table every time I go in the kitchen which makes me happy.

    I am am looking forward to seeing what you come up with for Easter!
