I found this vintage tablecloth at a local thrift store for $2! It was soft enough to be used as a quilt top!



Here is a close up of my favorite little cartoon, the mermaid:



Here's another funny part, the couple divorcing in Carson City:



Thanks for looking!

Well done! I have been searching for those cool vintage tea towels to frame but a tablecloth turned quilt is way too cute. Love it!

Great idea! I have a whole bunch of these old printed tablecloths, but never thought about turning them into quilts. Now I have another project to add to my list... Smiley

I love it!  - particularly the recycling aspect of re-using and bringing it back to useful life!
