I’ve no memory of a wetter or cooler 4th of July weekend, you?

It may be too wet for a bar bq, but it’s not too wet to sew.

If you’re wanting some patriotic inspiration I worked up a table runner using my block from 100 Blocks’ vol. 11 magazine, available on my website.

The instructions to make the block are in the magazine.

FYI, the corners are made with my Tiny Dresden template

(also available on my website).

For a 50” table runner make 4 blocks,

then set them together with a narrow 1/4” sashing (cut 1/2”).

Or for a 37” table runner,

make just 3 blocks with the same narrow sashing.

Quilt, then add binding.

You’ll have a cute table runner to use at every patriotic holiday for years to come!

Just keep sewing…
