Le Challenge - Geometrics

For  Le Challenge I made a Trapezomandilo (Τραπεζομανδιλο) or more simple and not in Greek a Table Cover (really I have totally forgotten the English name, it is time for me to go back to America).


I did the first part here and then when my husband asked if we were going to eat on it, I kind of freaked out and decided to arrange some Laminated fabric around it.

totally crazy, wouldn't suggest going this route
Glad I did, the first time I put it on the table the kids spilled milk, no use crying over spilled milk, right?  But I did yell, it was the end of the photo opp.
You can't really see the spilled milk, but mommy was not happy.


Here are some pictures that I got in before they decided to spill the milk.


The table topper is reversible and on the other side I have a Hexagon vs. Circle war going on.
I think I did a good job of using all of the geometrics, the center piece is rectangular the whole table topper is square, on one side is hourglass triangle blocks along with square blocks, quilted with a diamond shape, on the reverse is hexagons and circles. Ta Da, now wiping the milk off was easy, but wouldn't you figure that they also got it on the material, but I love having the material in the middle because then I can set hot pans on it and not worry about frying the laminated fabric.
Before the kids sat down, I was just setting the stage, should have known they couldn't resist cookies.

Table runner? Table cloth? Either way, looks great ;)

Wow! What a great idea to make part cloth and part laminate. You really did cover all of the geometric points with this design. Great job.

I love the bright, rainbow colors on the top side and the fun hexigons vs. circles in such pretty blues on the back. You did a beautiful job! Thank you for linking up!
