    Not as of yet, It was just a thought floating around in my head. Wish I'd thought of it sooner to grab thanksgiving fabs, but thats ok.... Theres always next yr. I figure maybe I could start saving now and in the meantime dig up some cute ideas..... Maybe I'll steal Henry's idea and use a whole cloth for center and other fabs around it /boarder style????? We'll see...... I'll let the fabs talk to me.... I'm Phycho..... no wait. That's phychic. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    You know what, I'll check at my store to see if we still have some fall/thanksgiving fabrics...we did last week -and our thanksgiving was in October! Not many of the quilting fabrics are on sale right now, but the whole section is at 50% off the week after Christmas (OMG, I'm going to be soooooo poor!)

    bev, what size is your table? i have two cloths no longer in use, but in excellent condition. both with napkins. but they are not very big. if you can use them alone of for the back side of a holiday cloth, i can send them.

    one is a pretty blue with a kinda loose weave - one is a steel grey brocade (long story) oval. neither color suits now. both permanent press but you can still quilt through them if you use them as backs..

    if you can use them, pm for more info. let me know your table size(s).

    I use flannel all the time for my table runners, table cloths, and place mats. It holds together much better with frequent washing (anyone ever have a meal that something doesn't drip or spill?) and it lies flat without a lot of ironing.

    Caution: wash and dry in the dryer at least twice (after zig zag stitching each end of the flannel length) so it's shrunk as much as it's going to.

    Bev a couple of the fabrics I sent would make nice table cloths they are "out of the box" colors for any holiday. I bought another length of the pinkish plaid for just that. It will make a nice table liner protector too with the flannel and another fabric for a different season. Unless you've already used it for a pretty quilt.

    Hugs,
    Sharon

    We put up three 6' tables for Christmas Dinner. I bought plaid flannel that is 54 inches wide and heavier than regular flannel. We use it every year. It washes beautifully, and then all I have to do the next year is spritz it with water and fluff it in the dryer. No ironing.
    Fluff and go! Oh, the backround of the plaid is white so there has been no fading.

    I haven't done any sewing in about a week. Haven't felt good. The cold really gets to my knees (arthritis) and I have to climb stairs to my sewing room where theres no heat.... Hoping to sew today tho. My Aunt gave me some robe fleece to put on back of Davids quilt..... I may just bring my sewing machine down stairs.... I like the idea of the flannel... I love the fabs you sent. They'll work awesome
    THANK YOU for keeping me sewing ANGEL GIRL :wink:
