This project was about a year in the making. Mostly because I refused to spend more than a dollar on a doily and it took me a long time to find enough that I liked cheaply enough. I first saw this idea here (I love her whole kitchen) and copied her idea for a table runner. Somewhere on Ashley's site there is a tutorial on making this. . . I didn't follow it but sort of made it up as I went, but it's there if you want it.
