Here is my holiday table, (featuring the quilted placemats) since some of you asked! I went with my clear glass dinner wear to show off the placemats. My "fancy" plates covered too much.
I did end up washing all the placemats after the big meal, (and line dried them instead of tossing them into the drier) and after a light touch up with the steam iron, they look almost new. Unlike the nice soft wrinkled look of a quilt, wrinkled is not (necessarily) the look I'm going for on a set table.
But this is not what you are waiting to hear. The winner of the 200th post giveaway will receive Kelly Biscopink and Andrea Johnson's 2012 book: Modern Designs for Classic Quilts.
And the winner is,
