Fabulous shabby chic style tablecloth made for a friend's newly paved outdoor room. Fabrics were based around the feature fabric of blue chintz pots of flowers after being inspired by some of my blue china and finding this print. www.flickr.com/photos/magikquilter/2753249206/in/photostr...
Muted shades of sage green and musky pink florals with tea dyed
florals and various satins and jacquards in toning shades. The
tablecloth was a gigantic three metres by two metres and was finished
off by hand stitching the 10cm wide peach rose spattered border fabric
to the calico backing. It looks soft and shabbily pretty and the man
of the house was reported as saying "you can't use that as a
tablecloth with food on it, its too beautiful to spoil"
High praise indeed, but then he also adored the Mandarin Robe ballroom setting I made them as well. Its here:
