DIY gingham napkins

With our Friendsgiving coming up we knew it was time for a nice set of napkins to set out on the table. I had made a set of embroidered cocktail napkins before, but this time I knew it was time for larger sized napkins. Our little apartment only allows for a small table that seats four, so we figured four napkins would be the perfect number! Plus it would always be easy to make more!
I got the fabric at Joann's Fabrics. I knew I wanted to have a colored side, a black and white side, and that I didn't want any of the napkins to look exactly the same. I grabbed four different fat quarter fabrics and a yard of gingham fabric and set off to work. I cut a square out of each fat quarter and four squares out of my gingham fabric and sewed them up with my sewing machine. I then picked out some embroidery floss and did a blanket stitch all the way the around each napkin.
Didn't they turn out adorable? What fabrics/color scheme would you use?
