Description

I had this fabric for over a year and just could not cut it.  (This hoarding gets on my nerves!) I finally got fed up with fear of ruining it and sliced the fabric randomly into chunks and added black strips (no rules!).  I could have added some buttons, baubles or applique to the top but....I just let this fabric stand on its own and use it on the dining room table while entertaining (besides decorating the kitchen counter). I really like it in the Autumn with silk leaves sprinkled across it. I'm glad I cut it.

You should definitely keep slicing and dicing your beautiful fabrics. This is stunning! How long is your table?

Thank you ladies! My table extends to 120 inches; the runner is about 6'2 or so.

I like the elegant simplicity of this piece. It really shows off the fabric. I agree; I would have a hard time cutting this fabric, too.
