Table squares are a fun way to quickly add a new look to your table. Almost instant gratification! Sewing little table squares is also a frugal way to use vintage and vintage reproduction fabrics that can cost a small fortune when you’re purchasing multiple yards. The next time you decide against a fabric you’ve fallen in love with because of the price, consider buying just one yard and sewing a simple rolled hem around the raw edges. Add a cute rickrack or eyelet trim. You still get to enjoy the luxury of the gorgeous fabric at a fraction of the price. These little table squares make sweet liners for gift baskets too.
Another way I like to use the more expensive fabrics is in quilts. I buy a yard or two and look for less expensive, coordinating selections from Jo-Ann or Hobby Lobby.

Munki Munki fabrics (designed by Heather Ross) are no longer available by the yard.
She is designing some new fabrics that are too sweet not to share.
Check out her WEBSITE for a preview of a line called Macaroni Love Story.
Here is a great WEBSITE where you can purchase vintage repro fabric. Have fun browsing!
