|Yesterday, when I should have been doing other things, I got the urge to sew and I thought what can I do. I've been wanting a quilt for my dining room table, but haven't made one, and then I thought, I wonder if I could make one from one of the manly quilt tops that I have already made. I figured it out, and I just had to add 5 inches to each end on the top (see the light color at the top) and a few inches to one end of the back. I did that, and got to basting. Today, I quilted it, my usual meander, and put on the scrappy binding. Voilà, my tablecloth (table quilt?). I'm going to wash and dry it and then I'll take a picture on the table. It isn't the fabrics of my dreams for my table, but it's ok, it'll be quite good in a month or so, and it is a good pattern for a tablecloth, hardly any lumps, and it's almost like a table runner down the center. My house isn't any cleaner though, and I'm not any more organized. Now, I'll get to doing those other things I should have been doing. I know it's probably a little tacky, but I'm also going to go to Walmart and see if I can find a clear vinyl tablecloth protector. It'll save on the washing.|
Oh well, it's not washed yet, but I wanted to see it on the table. Sorry, terrible lighting and dreary outside.
