A little Valentine's decor for my kitchen table - I was going for something a little romantic, a little antique-y, kind of old school Valentine's Day.
This is a really easy project - very basic quilting skills are all that's required - it would even be great for a beginner.
You will need:
*1 piece of red fabric cut 17 X 40 inches (you can adjust this measurement to fit the size of your table)
*1 piece of lace cut 17 X 40 inches (mine was an old lace tablecloth that I found at the thrift store)
*batting, a few inches larger on each side than your red fabric and lace - precision not required
*backing fabric, also a few inches larger on each side than your red fabric and lace
Layer your fabric and batting together - backing fabric first right side down, batting, red fabric on top right side up - just like you would if you were making a quilt
Now lay your lace piece on top of your red fabric. Pin it all in place (or baste if you prefer).
Quilt as desired - I quilted a 2 inch diagonal grid across mine. Bind as you would any other quilt. And it's ready to go on your table.
