Making progress . . . sorta.
I've been tossing around 2 ideas for the tablecloth—and then a variation on each.
With this option, I'm also trying to decide if I'd want to do log cabins or something in the corners or if I would just continue straight piecing.
leaning toward, would be to do a simple strip of pieced fabrics down the center of an otherwise linen tablecloth. I'm thinking that I would use some thermolam in there so that the "runner" element of the tablecloth would actually be insulated. This way it would act is a built-in set of trivets. I know we'd love that at my house!
Now, the flip side on both of these ideas—literally—is that these could be reversible. One completely different set of fabrics on each side. My mind keeps going to the really vibrant Anna Maria Horner Garden Party on one side and the more calm, but happy, Denyse Schmidt County Fair Home Dec on the other. Two looks rolled into one.
I have a zillion ideas buzzing around in my head for you! Just can't quite choose. I'm worrying a bit that these are to much "me" and maybe not enough "you" . . . if you know what I mean.
