I've had so much fun playing with Dena Designs fabrics lately. I used a variety of fat quarters from her Free Spirit fabric line called Tangier Ikat to create this Easy reversible tablecloth.
No pattern, but I'll try to explain the process. I cut each fabric print to be the same size (approx. 18 x 24). Then, I sewed them together in rows - short sides to each other. For my table, I needed not quite 3 rows wide. So, some rows needed half units on the sides.
I got a little fancy and decided when sewing the rows together to stagger where the seams go. So, instead of a traditional lined-up patchwork, it's random.
After I assembled the top, I added a vintage sheet for the back, and I was done. That's the best part - no batting, no quilting. Sew the top and bottom right sides together, leave a space to turn it, top stitch all the way around and done! So, even a beginner seamstress can make it! All straight line sewing. So easy, I can't wait to make more tablecloths! And, it's machine washable - great when you live with boys like I do.
Here's how the back looks:

Seriously, it's worth buying just for the eye candy. Every time I open it, I see a new idea.
