In almost every home, the kitchen table is where life is discussed; the heart of the home where a family's story unfolds. For our house, although we are empty nesters, our table continues to grow as each child finds their way and returns to share new stories and new faces—spouses, friends and now grandchildren as well. When everyone comes home, it's always the kitchen where we all congregate.
I have been making tablecloths for our kitchen table for years, many times using scraps of fabric left over from clothes I made for my children. This wasn’t Grandma’s starched white linen—our tablecloths were quite literally as unique as our family, full of bright colors and loud patterns, with no need to worry over little spills. Years later, my daughters still love to find a scrap from a first-day-of-school dress, or my son his vacation pajamas. It is always hard to throw the old tablecloth out…
