Stars & Stripes ... Forever Table Runner

As part of the quilt shop hop that Wardo's will be participating from May 1 - 10th. I needed to come up with a table runner design. So the other day, I was thinking and doing some research. I found a pattern I liked, and I decided to play with it alittle. I'm always a fan of patriotic designs, so I thought I would just go ahead with my idea. But really, it can be done with other colors besides. Its a simple pattern, so in a way, I'm sure I'm copying a design that has already been done.. but come on.. how many do you think there would be??



I needed to create a pattern with directions and have a model to show. So here is my model. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!


So, here is my Stars and Stripes ... Forever table runner. Its 18" X 36". The pictures do not do it justice. The colors are very Americana. If you would be interested in the pattern, let me know. First of all I have to write it up.. LOL




The table runner took about 10 hrs to complete.. that included the cutting, sewing, quilting and the dreaded hand stitching the binding. I LOVE the results!

Please let me know what you think. Would love to hear feedback.
