Floral Patchwork Table Topper

This topper was made with vintage floral scraps. The fabrics are probably from the 40’s and the weights vary, but they are not as heavy as bark cloth. Most of them had been curtains, drapes or pillows in their previous lives. The fabrics are so busy that I just noticed when taking the photo that one of the squares has some paint splatters on it — it’s really hard to see. The topper is machine quilted in the ditch, and the backing (which is turned to the front to form the wide binding) is a decorator remnant I had been using as a tablecloth.

The little vintage wall pocket looks pretty cute with the cloth. It was purchased from Barbara (Oodles and Oodles). Barbara is one of my favorite bloggers — she’s very clever and also has this amazing ability to find all the vintage items I love best — linens & sewing notions, glassware, pottery, holiday decorations and lots more — and some of them end up in her Etsy shop.
