Halloween Tablecloth

I just finished my
Halloween Tablecloth
for my dining room.
It looks so bright and cheery in my dining area.
I used three different pieces of fabric.
The center is one piece with stripes of various colors and designs.
The edge is two different pieces of fabric.
Black and a orange print (can't see the print in the picture)

I have sewed for over 50 years
(yes, it tells you how old I am)
I started young!
But I haven't done a lot of mitered corners
So I had to refresh my memory on how to do them.
My Tablecloth
is a beautiful cheery colorful
accent to my dining room
Because of the selection of fabric I used
I could use this tablecloth
throughout the Harvest Season.

  16. GEORGOUS!!! We "finally" acquired a table that seats us all...but it is 4 foot by 8 foot and really ugly. I have all these fun Autumn tablecloths and was trying to gifure out how to sue some for borders and do something like you did. I hadnt even thought about funky corners. I dont sew at all or even own a sewing machine ...I am in awe of you:)
