Memorial Day is just around the corner so today I pulled out all of my red, white and blue quilts, table decor and pillows that I use to decorate our home with through the summer.
While getting things arranged I realized I hadn’t written about or shown you the red white and blue items I made earlier this year for the shop.
Stars & Stripes Placemats
My inspiration for these placemats was the Missouri Star Quilt Company Stars & Stripes pattern. I followed the pattern for the star and used the coin quilt block to border the star representing the “stripes”.
Fabric: jelly roll Back Porch by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda.
Placemats measure 13 x 18 inches.
Starstruck Table Topper / Wall Hanging
My inspiration for this Wall Hanging was another Missouri Star Quilt Pattern – Starstruck. Using 16 jelly roll strips I was able to make two of these.
Fabric used Back Porch by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda.
Table topper / wall hanging measures 42 x 42 inches.
Quilt As You Go – Table Runner
After making the stars and stripes placemats and the two starstruck table toppers I had 10 jelly roll strips left over and made a gift for my stepdaughter.
Table runner measures 12 x 40 inches.
I tend to make smaller projects and a jelly roll is a great starting point!
Wave Your Flag Placemats
Inspiration for this set came from Fat Quarter Shop’s Wave Your Flag Table Runner tutorial/pattern. I modified the pattern to make 13 x 17 inch placemats. Fabric used Redwork meets Bluework by RJR and Boathouse by Sweetwater for Moda.
Scrappy Flag Table Runner
This was my favorite! I used Kaffe Fassett scraps in my stash. The runner measures 25 x 36 inches.
I hope you have a fun and safe Memorial Day!
Until next time Happy Sewing
