Today I had the sudden urge to make a quilt to go on my kitchen table. It seems sort of silly to put a quilt on a table, when it is bound to get dirty, but the romantic mind does not think in practical terms. Quilts add such warmth to any room!
I made my table quilt with some fabric that I had been hanging on to for some time–I was saving it for a special project. The fabric is so sweet and soft. I actually used an old sheet from Tony’s grandma as the backing so that I could get the same worn softness for both the front and back. To finish it off, I simply tied it with some pink floss.
If you want to make a quick tie quilt without binding…
Layer in this order–
backing-right side up
top-right side down
Sew around the edge leaving an opening to turn it right side out.
Use floss or yarn to tie all three layers together.
