Although I really like beige, white and cream for home colors, I tend to love very busy tablecloths for some reason. About 15 years ago, I bought the fabric and made this tablecloth for my Thanksgiving table. The background is blue, and there are fall leaves, acorns and other fall flora throughout.
Well, it fit the table that I made it for, but then I bought a very large harvest table. My favorite Thanksgiving tablecloth was definitely too small. I looked forever for that fabric, and never found anything similar. So, I decided to add several inches all the way around with a coordinating fabric. The original cloth fits the top of the table, and the extra fabric hangs down around all of the sides. Although it's not as good as the original...I still have my favorite tablecloth!
I sewed this on my Bernina which I've had since the summer I wrote the 6th grade reading curriculum guide for the district I was working in. I spent every penny on that machine. It's still the best!
Since I was sewing..I decided to make another tablecloth with some fabric that I found at Hobby Lobby on sale. I will use this for a tablescape soon. Isn't it beautiful?
