Recipe for Christmas Napkins

Have a friend named Sue to share the idea with youHave a friend named Sue to go to a pizza place and ask for a 16 " round cardboard to use as a templatefor 16 napkins purchase a total of 4 yards of material (2 yards light/ 2 yards dark)
Right sides together of contrasting fabric, cut 16 ' circle, cut in the center, sew, reverse, press, sew opening and just remember to fold on 45 degree angles depending on which way you want it to contrast with your table cloth.

Thanks Sue!!

How does a Quilter prepare for Easter?

The pillows are an adaptation of Bunny Hill Pattern French Rabbits. The egg pattern I picked up at a guild sale for 10 cents. What a "bargooon" if you are nutty enough to spend your time cotton batting stuffing fabric eggs.
