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)
- Embroidery floss (for tufting)
- Embroidery needle
