Tabletop Inspiration: Patchwork from the Purl Bee

Tabletop Inspiration: Patchwork from the Purl Bee

After posting on mix-n-match dishes yesterday, we discovered that a lot of you like this look. For those who are fans, we searched for other mix-n-match ideas and came across this DIY project from the Purl Bee: a patchwork tabletop...

Although it might be a little too scattered when paired with mismatched dishes, we think this is a great way to bring some color to your table if you have an all-white or monochromatic set. We love the idea of using fabric scraps to dress up a simple runner or napkins. Even if you're not a sewer, you could pull off the same look by using a set of mismatched placemats or napkins. You could also try quilted squares as plate chargers. For step-by-step DIY instructions, visit the Purl Bee.
