These were my first set of napkins made following the directions in Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts.  I loved how they turned out in the end, but there was too much pressing involved!  So, for my second set I decided to find an easier {read less pressing} way to make them.

Here's a link to my blog with the full tutorial for making these pretty napkins {with mitered corners}!http://thelifeofmegananne.blogspot.com/2011/08/heather-meet-martha-napkin-tutorial.html

I got this fabric at Hart's Fabrics, a LQS.  {hartsfabric.com}  It's by etsuko furuya for KOKKA and has a great heavier weight to it.  Perfect for napkins.

The fabric is Heather Ross - far far and away III.  I got it at Hart's Fabrics in Santa Cruz, CA.  But you should be able to find it online or in other local fabric shops.
