Patchwork Tablecloth & Napkins is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from grat project with some tweeking This is a great beginner project. I am in the middle of quilting. I added Velcro straps so I can add weights. I do not like when a table cloth fly off. I am also doing stich in the ditch and some other machine quilting. I would buy 5 yards for the backing, the 4.5was just a pinch short. I used flannel on the back, cheap

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I would do different. I haven't sewn this yet but I can see that when I do, I will wash and iron my fabric first for shrinkage and then when I am finished, I will stitch in the ditch so the lining won't move. I really think it sounds simple and very festive. Thanks for the idea.
