    Tablecloth Quilt

    I had posted a question about how to quilt this earlier. I found the middle part of this quilt on a trip to Mallorca--it was sold as a tablecloth for about $15, and I thought it would make a nice quilt. This is a queen size. First time I've used wool batting. I wanted to practice my FMQ on this, like a whole cloth quilt. I added the sides and some white fabric for an additional border to bring it all together.

    Your quilting worked well with the center panel. Very nicely done.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Very pretty center panel and nice quilting. I really like your use of the tablecloth panel. I think many household linens could be used for this art form. Great job.
