OLD QUILTS AS TABLECLOTHS


Yet another wonderful tablescape from the recent garden tour.


Isn't this lovely, with the old layered quilts? They were so soft and really they were ragged in places, but so beautiful. And I love the green and white dishes and the accents of pink and blue in the serving dishes and vases. So romantic looking. I could linger in the garden over this luncheon table anytime. I am joining Marty at http://www.astrollthrulife.blogspot.com  for Tabletop Tuesday and Susan at http://www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com  for Tablescape Thursday. Go visit these lovely blogs and be impressed.I am also joining Katherine for Tea Time Tuesday at http://www.ladykatherineteaparlor.blogspot.com

Vicki,
I adore the use of vintage quilts for their textile appeal. Your choice of color palette is stunning for the season. Each vase adds to the overall theme. Thank you for sharing your creativity and inspiring me to get those quilts out of the closet! HA!
Fondly,
Pat

Oh Sweetie...
Love the table, and yep I have been using quilts for some time now. Love it. I have bought several crib quilts and put them on the table, cross ways like a runner, and I love it. I bought 3 at the thrift store and didn't pay over 4.00 for any of them. They are just the perfect touch. I love that country look and feel that they give.

Your table looks gorgeous and the colors are perfect for a garden setting. Just beautiful sweet friend. Love those green dishes as well.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I LOVE the idea of quilts as tablecloths. I first saw this done years ago when a friend of mine did it and have been in love with the idea ever since. I've been known to use tartan plaid afghans as well. Such great looks can be achieved as you've shown here.
