I had these three tablecloths that were destined to be disposed of when we start packing up our house sometime soon. I had dye left in the refrigerator from dying the fabric for Kristin's wedding flags, so I decided to dye these tableclothes and see if there was anything worth keeping. This one I really like alot, and the light colored areas were a surprise although I did suspect that part wasn't cotton.
I did the quilting on this piece today. I used heavier thread than I normally quilt with and am happy with the results. You can see a closeup of the stitching below. The water was stitched with Signature variegated quilting thread-40 wt, I believe. The red section was stitched with Sulky Blendables, 30 wt. Unfortunately, I don't have many spools of heavier thread, but I have lots of trilobal polyester! Oh joy, another thing I need to collect!
