Sweet Liberty Quilted Table Runner - American Flag Style!


Doesn't the Coca-Cola fabric scream Americana?
I pulled several other red and white prints with a similar vibe
Finished Size 21" x 42". I used a double layer of poly batting since it will be stored so often throughout the year.
I really love the Stars block, well I really love friendship blocks and my thought was that it is pretty cool to see them used in a patriotic way.

The following shot was photo-bombed!
Desert wildlife, can you see him?
The pattern I tested for Julie at Intrepid Thread. Memorial Day seemed like a great time to share the photos. When I considered whether Julie had released the pattern yet, I Googled 'Quilted Flag Tablerunner' and found a free pattern site that led me to her original tutorial. The pattern is called Sweet Liberty Table Runner - it is found at Quilted Fish . Posted back in 2011, it seems this pattern is no secret after all!

I had to lay it on the sand to get a full-on shot, without the wind ..
BTW, the free pattern site I mentioned is pretty awesome! Have you been to Quilt Inspiration? Loads of quilt pattern links, and grouped by pattern type. I found this Sweet Liberty Table Runner on the patriotic and flag quilts page.  Check it out if you want quick ideas for summer celebrations!

Thank you for reading today! I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend! An extra day to browse the Friday Finish Linkups:-)

Rarely do I have a post ready a day early, so I am happy to be linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday as well !!

  2. I have a soft spot for American flag designs. That stripe of Coke fabric and the bikes on the bottom really add a special American touch to your runner. Well done! (And I love that bunny in the background!)
