This amazingly versatile ragged style tablecloth was created using the Garden Green homespun fabrics. The soft sagey colors lend a neutral background to all your holiday decorating and works perfectly for everyday decor as well. See more pictures below.
This particular size is 66" x 94". It was created using blocks of fabric that were cut 8" square. The squares were stitched together 10 rows wide by 14 rows long. You can easily adjust the width or the length by adding or deleting rows. We used a double layer square and did not add batting between the layers. This makes a lighter weight product that can be used as a throw also. Doing this without batting between the layers will also allow you to complete the project much quicker which is always a bonus!
If you are using only homespun for this tablecloth project, it is not necessary to prewash the fabric before cutting and stitching. After piecing it all together, clip the exposed seam allowances according to the directions here: Clipping Seams for Rag Quilts. Then machine wash and dry it all to create all the fluffy ragged fray.
Of course, you would not be limited to the Garden Green fabrics for this tablecloth style. The patchwork design looks great in many different combinations of our homespun fabrics.
