The Seattle Dining Room

For some reason I thought I had blogged about this weeks ago. But apparently not!
I wanted to share a few photos of our dining room in Seattle. We started off by painting the walls a bright yellow. It’s perhaps a bit too bright, but I’ve gotten used to it.
Next I recovered an upholstered chest with some Denyse Schmidt from JoAnn’s. (The chest is full of clean linens-these are the things you do when you live in a small house!)

Next I made lots of cloth napkins:

And then I created a new table cloth to match!

 It’s reversible!

All fabric is from the Denyse Schmidt line at JoAnn’s. The white is kona pfd (prepared for dyeing-that’s what my JoAnn’s had at the time). I sewed the table cloth with a reversible log cabin, quilt as you go technique (there’s no batting involved). I especially love that technique for table clothes because they get washed a lot, and the quilt as you go method keeps the layers from shifting around!

  1. You always do such great quilting! Love all your new things! I have a question about your cloth napkins. We've wanted to switch to cloth for awhile now but just haven't taken the time to sew any. Did you use just regular quilting fabric? Did whatever cloth you use absorb well enough? I LOVE your basket of napkins!!
