From Old to New
The tables we used for Hope's party are 60 inch round. The church provided white tablecloths and I new I wanted to add a pop of pretty color but I didn't have enough time to take on a big sewing project. I remembered that I had a vintage Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt that was in really bad shape. I had purchased it with the intent of making it into something new. I found a large round container and I traced 17 circles on it with a thick sharpie marker. Then I cut out the circles (the first cut made my heart hurt a bit) and then I sewed pom-pom trim in pink and white to all the circles. Each table had a quilt circle on it with a pitcher of flowers. I am using some now for placemats in the kitchen. So fun and so easy!
