Quilt or tablecloth?
At the end of May this year, my SIL and I went to St. Jacobs area for their quilt festival. We attended a quilt preview at a Mennonite auction and while browsing the tents for new/used items, this piece was purchased for $10.00. I was looking through old used magazines and a lady customer talked me into buying this. At first, I thought it was for a twin size bed; my SIL thought it was a table cloth and runner. Now that I have it hanging up to take a photo, I realize that the open space between the embroidered areas is too wide for a pillow tuck. Once I put it on my table, it is definitely a table cloth and runner. Perfect!!! The person that did the embroidery is a master and I wonder why she never cut up the pieces and hemmed them to use. For $10.00, I sure got a treasure and I will finish them to use. 'Thank you' to whoever embroidered these ..... they are wonderful!
