    Smile Spanish tiles quilt as Tablecloth Blue, yellow, green

    I have a blue, yellow and green kitchen with lemons and yellow roses as themes and I needed a tablecloth to go on my table to cover up some pretty disgusting water rings.
    I decided on the spanish tiles pattern from living large 2 book because it showcased large scale prints so well. I used the line summer breeze by moda and a lemons print from Farmer john.
    I have to say that I would NOT recommend this pattern to a beginner quilter. Those X and V blocks were a PAIN! If I ever make this pattern again I will just applique the X and V blocks it will be soooo much easier than piecing them.

    I put some plastic sheeting over the quilt so I didn't have to worry about staining. It just wipes clean.

    Happy quilting,
    Jeanne

    Very nice -- great choice of colors and a great job. I like your idea of putting plastic on top -- trying to keep the quilt clean has prevented me from making a table cloth. Great idea.

    Oh wow, I love it, I have plans of making that quilt, I have had my book for a couple years now and still waiting to find perfect fabric, I am making a quilt out of the Summer Breeze charm pack. I love everything about your quilt.

    Thank you Jeanne for sharing this beautiful tablecloth. I just love everthing about it, the color palatte, the pattern, the plastic sheeting as a protective cover and the way it blends perfectly with your kitchen. Love the fabric line

    The table cover is JUST lovely. How did you totally match the fabric with the wallpaper? So pretty. And such a beautiful cheery kitchen.

    Nice kitchen - the table cover goes perfectly with it.

    What did you use for backing and batting and/or lining?

    I Used June Taylor fusible batting and just did very little quilting. The back is a sheet. Nobody sees the back so I figured why spend the money on something fancy for the back.

    Thank you for the info - is the batting fairly thin? So water glasses don't wobble on the table?

    This batting doesn't look all that thin when you get it BUT when you iron all three layers together (top, batting, backing) it reduces down alot. It makes the quilt somewhat stiff which is good in this application. I used this because I wanted the top to lay as flat as possible. I only stitched in the ditch very little as I do not plan on washing it. I put a plastic vinyl I bought at JoAnns over it and that makes it simple to clean. The quilt lays very flat on the table and I have no problems with glasses wobbling.
