The most popular is 18 x 13, but you can make what fits your table, even semi circular for a round one. Toppers, usually are put on table kitty-corner.You can make it for just the table top, or the tips can hang down. Round ones, rectangle or ovals can match the various table shapes, and are often only about 20"-30" across.

hi bridget. re: sizes for different things. i have been making window coverings, table toppers/cloths etc for many years. i start by measuring the object i am sewing for. figure how much i want to hang over sides, as in a table topper and then draft my pattern be it patchwork or whole cloth to fit that item. for placemats i cheated years ago...:)) ..went to dept store and measure the diff ones that they had in stock. then checked to make sure what i wanted to make would work ok on my table...if for a friend...???? oh well...guestament time!!  i use newspapers or for years because i had so much of it lollollollol...the big brown packing paper that movers use. you are charged [or were..don't know about now] for the whole package whether they used it all or not...so i would grab the unfinished packs of paper...drawing paper for my son and pattern paper for me. works great.
