no. 2: cloth in cross stitch, based upon traditional Hungarian motifs.

Below a drawing with the complete motif repeated three times on the long side and two times on the short side of the cloth. To see how the result will look like there is a second drawing with about a quarter of the cloth. Then there are three working drawings.

As drawn on the first design the pattern measures 390x313 cross stitches. Using cloth with 10 threads per centimeter, it gives a result about 78x62,5 centimeter. So it will be fine on a table measuring 80x65 centimeter. One time the motif is 76 cross stitches long. So with the same cloth you can create a design with is 15 or 30 or 45 centimeter ..... longer on one or both of the sides. Of cause you can get other possibilities using cloth with for instance 11 or 12 threads per centimeter. Well what I wanted to say: choose and measure you table and take some time in calculating the possibilities. That also can be fun and very quick you're less dependent of totally pre described patterns. You're not certain about your idea, send me a message and I will help you.

You have permission to copy and/or print the working drawings for own use. If you send me a photograph with the result I put it on this site.
