Sunburst Splendour Tablecloth

A crochet tablecloth pattern to commemorate the 2017 solar eclipse, Sunburst Splendour. So pretty and perfect for a wedding cake table. Even a table runner made with these motifs would be stunning.

The lacy motifs are crocheted separately then sewn together with a fill-in motif. These really do look like a sunburst.

Table Topics

This fine lace tablecloth pattern comes from a 1942, second edition of a Spool Cotton Company booklet titled New Table Topics No. 185. There are several wonderful vintage crochet tablecloth patterns throughout this booklet. I hope to share another one in the future.

What you’ll need

For a tablecloth about 60 x 80 inches, make 13 x 17 motifs. If you’re making the whole tablecloth you’ll need 77, 49 or 25 balls depending on their size, big or small, of six cord mercerized crochet cotton size 30. White or Ecru are the colors, but as always the choice of color is up to you.

Small balls of this discontinued crochet cotton usually held between 80 to 175 yards and the big balls would be 250 to 300 yards. A substitute would be Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread Extra Fine 30.  For the gauge, each motif measures about 4½ inches in diameter, a crochet hook size of No. 10 or 11 is used.

Starburst Close-Up

Here’s a close up of the starburst motifs. See how lacy and pretty they are and not too many difficult stitches.

Tablecloth Crochet Pattern

Today’s pattern freebie is a lovely star crochet pattern for a tablecloth. This is a vintage Coats and Clark’s leaflet for the Design of the Month. It’s called Shining Star and was a free leaflet at the time.

Suggested colors are White, Ecru or Cream. Either J & P Coats or Clark’s Big Ball Mercerized Crochet Cotton in Size 30 is used to make this pretty cloth. You’ll need a lot of cotton for this 62 x 83 inch tablecloth. Of course, you could make it smaller as a table runner or dresser scarf.

Two Square Motifs

You’ll see that each motif is 4½ inches square. There are crochet instructions for two motifs and an edging. To make the full tablecloth you need 14 rows of 19 motifs.

This crochet pattern is ambitious, but so worth the trouble when finished. I think I’d have to go with a table runner or smaller table cloth. Has anyone seen a vintage crocheted tablecloth in this pattern?

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

Lilac’s were and still are one of my favorite flowers. I saw them everywhere when I was young and lived in upstate New York. They have a beautiful fragrance and color.

So when I saw this Lilac Time filet crochet pattern for a table cloth, I had to share it. It’s actually for a Tea cloth 49 inches square and the pattern suggests using a very fine fabric.

Welcome to the VTNS Fan Freebie!

Today’s freebie is from an early 1900’s Star Needlework Journal. I have quite a few Star Needlework Journals and I love flipping through the pages seeing all of the different kinds of projects in them.

This one is a cross stitched Daffodil Luncheon Set. Designs for a tablecloth and napkins. It’s pictured on the front cover.

A linen with an even weave is used for the cross stitching. The project uses American Thread Company’s “Silkline” Art Thread and Crochet Cotton.

Since the American Thread Company has been out of business for a long time, I don’t have a conversion chart for the numbers but the colors are listed next to the symbols.

Here are the diagrams and instructions:
