Kitchen Cheer


I've been looking for a tablecloth for the kitchen table for quite some time. It's a small dinette, making it difficult. I think this new quilt made from vintage table linens is just perfect, don't you?

PS.~ Sadly, I wasn't the one who constructed this beauty!

That is a lovely idea, and I have a particular love for table clothes. Did you make it yourself?

what a cute idea! I like the colors

Constance said...

VERY pretty and colorful and cheerful as well! I just made a suggestion to the Apron Queen about covering tablecloths with clear vinyl to protect them from stains and spills. You can buy it at most fabric stores or even Wal Mart carries it in their craft and fabrics section!

It looks wonderful!

I love to use quilts on dining tables and I think it protects the wood quite nicely as well.

Lovely, just *lovely*! (o:

I love it and I love your banner. I love strawberries. They are my favorite food. I'm going to make me a table cloth like that now. Thanks for sharing.

Tracy, what a great way to cover a table.

I received my darling apron in the mail this week, thank you so much! It is just perfect and the colors are really fun!

Thanks again, Julie

Very cheery. I think it looks amazing.

I'm starting to think I need a thin quilt on my table ~ oh the gouges my children make when they're writing with nothing behind the page to protect the table underneath!
