Mother's Tableclothes Quilt
The Mother’s Tablecloths quilt reminds me of the days when many young girls embroidered a table cloth for their mothers. I have no idea where the three my Mother had ended up, but mine certainly was not the standard of these! This quilt uses three hand embroidered tablecloths from a charity shop as the focus of the front blocks, plus a machine embroidered one for the back. Smaller remnants have been used on the sides of the blocks. Four matching ditsy flower prints are used to frame the front blocks and to bind the quilt.
The wadding is eco friendly, non allergenic cotton and bamboo and is fully washable. The quilt can be machine washed with mild detergent on a delicate cycle, and dried naturally, giving the quilt an antique, wrinkled texture. The tablecloths and backing materials are recycled, hence the bargain price for this quilt!
