Leaving on a Jet Plane

Very early tomorrow morning, at a time I would much rather be sleeping, my husband and I are boarding a plane for Atlanta, Georgia to spend two weeks with my twin sister Diane and her husband. I have no doubt we’ll have a wonderful time. We always do!

As a hostess gift, I made Diane 12 table napkins:

A Dozen Table Napkins for Diane


The napkins, which measure 19″ square, will look good with Diane’s everyday white dishes from Pottery Barn and the beautiful Spode china in the Rosalie pattern that her mother-in-law gave her many years ago. The fabric is Heavenly Peace by Verna Mosquera for Free Spirit Fabrics. It’s been in my stash for a couple of years.

My plan was to make 16 napkins but I didn’t get them all done, so I’m taking four with me that are cut but not sewn. I can finish them while I’m there. Diane usually has a crowd at Thanksgiving, and I want to make sure there are enough to go around.

We use cloth napkins all the time at the Portland White House. Over the years I have experimented with mitered corners and have finally come up with a method I really like. In the next few days I will post a tutorial on how I make mitered corners for my table napkins. I hope you will come back for a lesson!
