A Christmas TableCloth

My sister, who knows how much I hate to sew, put me on to this beauty.  So "freakin" easy.....but I still don't like to sew.  She told me to "You Tube" the 10 minute block;  so I did.....Here's the link I used.  I must confess, this was a slap together kinda tablecloth and I hope any guests that come over don't look at the backside cuz it's a mess!
Here we go!
I chose five fabrics but you can use three.  Made a 10 x 10 template from cardboard, and cut 4 pieces of each color.  That's 20 pieces.  That will make 4 blocks.

This is kinda weird, but you are left with a puffy center square whose edges can be rolled over, like in the picture below.  It kind of reminds me of a cathedral quilt.

I rolled the edge over, pressed and stitched down.
All 4 blocks sewn together!

Fabric chosen for perimeter.

Folded in half and sewn to edge of tablecloth.
