Gum leaves

are on the tablecloth! Large, oversized appliqued ones with some free-motion gum blossoms scattered in between. I have taken the pattern from an old issue of Australian Patchwork and Quilting Magazine and 'liberated' it into the central panel of a tablecloth.
My MIL had a cloth which had been made by yours truly for a table in their old house. Now there is a newish house and a fantastic outdoor eating space. Roll call - one new tablecloth please - here is the old one - what can you do with it? Voila, take cloth, new fabric to match and adapt a pattern, then add elbow grease, sewing machine, rayon threads and time.

Happy table, happy MIL and FIL; I'm happy that the project is done!
