With one middle seam – you could make a 108 x 132 with 7 1/3 yards.  You could cut or hem the “extra” up to make it the 90′ that you want.  I might make it 7 1/2 yards each so you’ll have selvage for the end seam, too.

EDIT – I know that you know this, but for two tablecloths you would need 15 yards.  You also need to make sure that you get the fabric in at least 3 & 3/4 yard continuous pieces.

Wow, the ready made ones are pricey…especially when you only need two and the minimum order is six!

Just wanted to add that you might consider cutting one of those 3 3/4 yard pieces down the middle lengthwise and sewing each of those pieces onto either side of the full width of another 3 3/4 yard piece.  That way you don’t have a seam right down the middle, which could possibly disrupt your centerpieces.  🙂

Has anyone used these linens? How do they look in person?

Thanks
