The Coral Floral!

One of the many things I do for my employers is to provide a tablecloth for the lunchroom. It was time to replace the last one - whoo-hoo! A business trip to the fabric store! Of course I went on my own time, but still. . . The best part is, a new fabric store moved into the small shopping plaza that is just half a mile from home. An easy walk even when carrying fabric. :>} The shop mainly carries upholstery fabric, but I found several things suitable for tablecloths. It was easy to choose because this one was $2 per yard. Another one I liked a lot was $21 per yard, making my decision ever so easy. This is a polished cotton chintz, and should be able to repel all the spills that happen at lunch. The table is a lot bigger than the one at home I photographed it on, so a three yard cut of 54" fabric is perfect. All I had to do was cut the selvedges off and hem the four sides. Presto! We have the (say it with me) Coral Floral.

Love the colours of the tablecloth. It would be so good having a fabric store within walking distance especially one that makes your decision making easy.

That is so pretty, Diana. Of course, I like about anything with flowers, but the colors on that are really nice. Easy to do tablecloth too! :D

What a beautiful fabric! It must make it a lot nicer to sit down for lunch. How nice of you to do something like this for your co-workers :-)
