I read that it resembles fabric of hand-stitched quilts made in Marseilles, France.
Matelasse quilts and throws are beautiful on a bed or strung across the back of a couch.
One more use I discovered this week was using a small piece for a table cover as well!
A table cover? Uh huh.
There was a small coverlet in a bedroom pretty much unused so I decided to put it on the kitchen table instead.
It's perfect with a new red beaded heart that my daughter gifted me, along with heart-covered napkins and paper plates for Valentine's Day! (Thanks, honey!)
I added red heart-covered place mats, the white 'permanent' lace chargers and the new white teapot filled with posies.
It brightens things up in the well-used kitchen on a snowy winter's day.
ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH MATELASSE FABRIC?
