at thanksgiving, i thought i need a table cloth ......Christmas is coming... i'm thinking table cloth....... ok obviously i can't make either this yr..... thanksgiving fabs gone now....i think....... But gonna try collecting xmas fabs and make one up for next yr....ok long story short....... to make a tablecloth..... do i just pretty much make a quilt top and back with just fabric? i thought maybe i could do a thanksgiving on one side/christmas on the other? We lay out our food on a long folding table. i thought it would be pretty to have it decorated with a table cloth..... :D

Are you thinking of a tableCLOTH or a table RUNNER?

The reversable idea is a great idea...but which are you making?

Just thinking Bev, if the table is covered with food mostly, then why dont you just do a border around a plain piece of fabric, so that the edge that drapes over will showcase all your lovely patchwork, less work that way, and you might just get it done for this xmas!! :lol:

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:

I like something to line it with, so it has more substance and lays "flatter" on the table. Flannel would be a good choice.
