Thanksgiving Tablecloth Quilt...

Brynwood Needleworks - Thanksgiving Tablecloth Fabrics 1

I'll be at Kathy D.'s home today. We each have vintage, whole-cloth tablecloths that we're going to turn into quilts. We had seen a Christmas tablecloth done this way, and decided we loved the idea. 

That evening, I went online and found the same Christmas tablecloth (which we'll do another time), and then found this gorgeous Thanksgiving tablecloth. So, I purchased two of them. One for Kathy's home, and another for ours. 

Kathy has a longarm sewing machine, so we're going to get them up on the frame, layer fabrics and batting, and get them quilted in time to use on our tables this Thanksgiving.

I've chosen two different fabrics as choices for the back of my Thanksgiving tablecloth quilt, and which I choose will ultimately come down to whether or not I have enough of one fabric over the other. My first choice is the darker color shown on the first photograph (and on the far left side of this photo). The lighter colored fabric is also lovely, but will give the tablecloth a dressier look and feel than the darker one. We'll see which one will work.

So, if you're looking for me, I'll be needle dancing with my girlfriend. I'll show you which I chose as my backing when I write again tomorrow.
