A Friday Finish

I have been sew busy this week. I have finally finished quilting my sister's quilt. It took 16 hours at the machine. But it is not bound yet, so that is not the finish I am going to show you today.  This is the finish for today:

 My new tablecloth!  I know, not as spectacular as a new quilt, but I love it! I have made several tablecloths and I know that since most quilting cottons are not wide enough, they need to have borders added to them.
 I fell in love with this print and bought two yards of it. It reminds me of a tablecloth my sister has that she bought in France.  The colors are much brighter in this fabric, but I still adore it.
 I found some blue and a pale yellowish green in my stash. They match the green and the blue in the fabric pretty closely. I only had fat quarters of them, so I ended up making narrow strips out of them and then adding a wider red border.
I took the pictures outside on the picnic table. Better light out there and my dining area is a mess right now anyway. So happy to have this. I think I will save it for the holidays.  Hope you have a great weekend.
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts finish it up Friday.
