More tablecloth thoughts.

This is how the table cloth would look like if the flowers are arranged in straight lines:

And this is how the tablecloth would look like if four leaves are touching, so the flowers are arranged in squares:

I think it would fit our balcony table nicely if I make 8 x 8 squares, which would mean that I have to make 64 squares. I'm not sure about how to join the squares yet. If I use all-four-leaves-touching arrangement, then I will definitely join them by using a border, so there will be some "white" seperating the leaves.

So how long will it take me to make this tablecloth?

7 squares a week => 2.3 months

5 squares a week => 3.2 months

3 squares a week => 5.3 months

It would be nice if I could use it this summer, so I should try and make 5 squares each week at least. But for now I really should finish crocheting my blue blouse first.

I really like the second arrangement of squares. It will be beautiful!

lol! With that much crocheting and my neverending blanket squares, we ought to get together for some more crochet/knit marathons!! :)
