mellow

a patchwork tablecloth

Elio had his wooden figures lined up on the sill in what struck me as a Burghers of Calais arrangement. I felt compelled to put out a safety net. This one is inspired by the tablecloth pattern in Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. I wanted to work with remnants on hand, so I pieced it log cabin style rather than in strips and made bias tape to bind the edges instead of using rickrack with a folded hem. And now this will be folded away for Thanksgiving.

Comments:
The Burghers? Delicious.

And the tablecloth.
