I have some really old ones (WIPs) - I am a quilt topper queen. I enjoy the part of acquiring fabric, cutting it, piecing it back together into something, and then storing it away until one day I can magically have those extra ten hours every day for quilting. I have many many tops that await for me to designate them worthy of quilting time, and some are probably older than this one.
I remodeled my kitchen in 2008 - so sometime before that, I started this tablecloth, I assembled the entire top. And then it was put away.
When we remodeled, we did away with a table and we have an island with a granite table attached. No need for a tablecloth now, and it isn't rectangular, so this tablecloth went into some pile for maybe getting to later, but really doesn't have a purpose anymore, so who knows what will happen. Here is a photo of the newer granite table, this photo was after a hurricane and we had lost power, so I had set up in the kitchen to use the generator.
I ran across this unfinished tablecloth again while my immense closet clean out was happening. I decided that I would finish this one off and use it for Thanksgiving, because the whole thing was together, I didn't want to waste all the work. I set up a folding table for extra seating on Thanksgiving, and this would do for that table.
I backed it with flannel, no batting and grid stitched the entire top. And the flannel I had bought way back when too, and was with the tablecloth when I pulled it out. Sometimes, I actually have a plan, I just don't remember all the plans.
The tablecloth turned out nice, and was used on Thanksgiving, I don't have a photo of that, but I do have a day after photo, when someone was exploring the extra furniture in the room.
Bunny stamp of approval.
Keep Calm and Quilt On!
