The blocks are made of a linen fabric that I bought as a HUGE tablecloth on clearance at Kmart about 3 years ago. I loved the colors in the tablecloth, but we are not a tablecloth using family and it wasn't the right size for our dining room table. I finally got around to cutting out some blocks and making it into something usable. I still have tons of blocks and probably 2 yards of fabric left, so I may make a tablerunner, too, at some point. I love how the tabletopper turned out to look like a windowpane and all the leaves falling past the window. I bought the brown fabric on sale for $1 a yard at JoAnns. I normally don't like the fabric there, but this is even the Stonehill line of fabric they sell, which I think is supposed to be the higher end fabric they carry. I like it.
I've got a couple other projects, namely Christmas ones, in the works.
