    Check out this fabric I bought to make my mother a mother's day table top. I fell absolutely in love with the print. I had another set all picked out then saw this at the last minute and had to buy the whole bolt. It's OK, there was only 2 yards left and on sale, so got it for $8. :wink:

    You have the makings for a wonderful spring table topper. I'm anxious to see a picture when you get it finished.

    Those fabrics are absolutely lovely! I hope you post the finished product. I have the worst time leaving any fabric "orphan", If there is some left on bolt(2 yards or less) I usully finish it.
