This is my scrappy hearts valentine's Day quilt. Each year I get it out in February.
This year I am kicking around the idea of using it for a tablecloth for a pink Valentine's table. If you ever look at decorating magazines, you have almost certainly seen quilts used as tablecloths.
They are not very practical for that purpose.
Try to balance a glass of liquid on a quilted cloth...not very easy to do. You must use a good stiff placemat on top of the quilt to set the glasses, etc.
Really I would only suggest using a quilt as a tablecloth, if you aren't going to actually eat at the table. . . you just want the romantic ambience a quilt-covered table gives.
OK, so I have probably just talked myself out of using it in the dining room. I will have to see if I find the energy this week to play around with the idea. I do have pink dinner plates..........it would be fun to see if I can create something with them.....
Tomorrow I have my root canal. That may be all the excitement I can handle for this week. :)
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
