So here’s the scoop, or should I say the big question…
The other day Friend Mary came by to visit. We had coffee, cake and chat. She brought me a gift of two tea towels because she had read in Nina’s blog, The Other Side of the Ocean about how I was madly in love with the tablecloth she’d gotten in Limone, Italy, while she was there a few months ago. I could not find anything just like it online, and Mary thought these tea towels were pretty similar to Nina’s.
That very afternoon, after she left, I went to the Crate and Barrel website and ordered two more, and now I plan to put them together to form a tablecloth for the breakfast/supper room (not the dining room as in these photos).
My question is, how should I do this?
1) Do I make four blocks with the four tea towels, like I’ve shown here in the photos? …or
2) Do I buy four more of them, and make two complete tablecloths with just one pattern on each (i.e. 4 tea towels per tablecloth sewn together)? …or
3) Do I cut these four tea towels up into smaller squares and make a real patchwork type of tablecloth out of them, like maybe 5-6″ squares or whatever would work with the measurements I have?
They were not so expensive that I would hesitate to buy 4 more of them. With four more, I could have two complete cloths each with only one pattern, peppers or lemons/citrus.
I am taking suggestions here, so don’t be shy.
Which will it be? Choice #1, Choice #2, or Choice #3?
Or… is there another way you can think of?
I’m all ears.
