A simple technique lets you turn any expanse of pretty fabric into a welcoming coverlet. Here, a vintage floral linen tablecloth creates the top of the quilt, but any medium-weight fabric will work. We used a piece of linen in a complementary color to create the backing and border.
Basic sewing supplies
Fabric for top of quilt
Cotton batting (cut to the same size as the top fabric)
Medium-weight linen (about 2 inches longer on all sides than the top fabric)
