Patriotic Table Runners

When do YOU decorate for the 4th of July?  Do you wait for the 1st of July to roll around?  Do you pull out your red, white and blue d├ęcor in June?  I can never decide.  It seems to early to decorate.  A few days ago I found my table runners from last year and pressed them flat, but there they sit in my sewing room.  Maybe today is the day that I take them upstairs and embrace the idea that July 4th is only 11 days away.

By the way, the pattern for these table runners is called Patriotic Parade and can be purchased here for only $5!  You can see more about the Patriotic Parade runners here.  They’re made using a technique called reversible applique – which is not difficult and is fun to play around with.

A few weeks ago I worked on another patriotic table runner for my local quilt shop.  They needed a table runner pattern that they could give out for free during their shop hop.  So I got to work!

You can’t really go wrong with stars and stripes, right?

And here’s the finished runner-

So when it comes back from being on display I’ll have one more runner to help my home feel a bit more festive!  (Whenever I decided to finally decorate)

  1. Beautiful runners. I usually wait until July first to pull out my American decorations and then leave it up the whole month.

  4. We decorate with red, white and blue starting May 1st for Memorial Day then Flag Day is June and then Independence Day (and Pioneer Day) in July! I don't take it down until then! I think I need to hire you to make a quilt or two for me...
