Day of the Dead Tablecloth

The new tablecloth in the dining room. 
Today was a busy project day – perfect for a rainy afternoon.  Eric worked on refinishing a rocking chair that was a prize trash day find (will post that later) while I worked on this tablecloth and a chocolate and cherry cake.  
My mom sent me another Day of the Dead print, but I am currently debating what to do with that selection.  Will post when my decision is final.  I have a few ideas rattling around in my head right now.

This project was a quick one, just a couple hours.  I had a yard of the print and then found a remnant of black fabric.  I cut the black into four 5-inch sections, which I then sewed on to the 4 edges.  This made a nice edge to which I could affix the decorative trimmings.
