pillow cases vintage Patriotic Patchwork Table Runner decorative pillow shams

Hello Everyone,

Summer is officially here and the AGF Crew is beyond excited for outdoor BBQ’;s, beach days, and of course getting together to watch the fireworks on the 4th! We are definitely dreaming of fun summer memories ahead. Which is why we created the “;Watching Fireworks”; patriotic patchwork table runner tutorial. With July 4th being around the corner we wanted to keep the table runner quick and easy.

After gathering all the yummy red, white and blue fabrics AGF has to offer we narrowed it down to 19 prints. It’;s a super great project to use up all your scraps laying around because all you need are rectangle, squares and strips to put this table runner together. After sewing up the table runner we loved using the Walking foot #50?to add lots of matchstick quilting and decorative stitches. It really helps to move all your layers of fabric through the machine to create the perfect stitch.

We decided not to bind the table runner and instead sewed the back and front right side together and add a long topstitching around the edgespillow cases vintage, that definitely added a nice professional touch.

Hope you enjoy the step by step tutorial below. Have a happy Summer, filled with lots of sewing and family fun!

Sewing up the Top :?Step 1- Piecing?

Collect all your red, white, and blue fabrics and let’;s get started!

Following the Diagram below sew your? strip sets together.

You will need to make three of these units. Sew all three units together.

To get the diagonal look, cut on a 45 degree a 18″; x 52″; piece from your sewn piece.Save the left over pieces to create decorative pillows for your guests to use at your July 4th get together.

Place your tablerunner top on top of a piece of batting at least 5″; bigger on all sides of your piece. Quilt as your heart desires! We used a lot of matchstick quilting, zigzag stitches and an “;x”; decorative stitch, stitch number 305.

Take your 18″; x 52″; backing and place right sides together to your quilt top and pin into place. To add a fun festive flair to your tablerunner try adding some homemade tassels. Click here to learn how to make the tassels.?We stitched the tassels to the corners and the center of the top and bottom of the tablerunner.

Stitch all around with a 1/2″; seam allowance, leaving a small unsewn portion to flip piece through. Give your project a good press and make sure your points are all turned out. Topstitch about 1/4″; around your entire piece.

Add the charming and quick winter scene, The Cabins in the Woods motif to your next border and you’ll be snuggled up in your gorgeous handiwork in no time at all!? This motif looks more complicated than it is—just three simple motifs combined together in one whimsical border!

We may not be able to weather the cost of a completely new bathroom, however there are a number of ways you can update your bathroom to give a fresh new look. Clear the clutter! This can't be emphasised enough, it's the quickest way to start a new look, furthermore it doesn't cost you a penny!

I know I’ve been a little MIA but we’ve had a big project in the backyard, an overwhelming workload (which we planned on being MUCH less), and then decided to hire out for some help to haul away a huge amount of dirt.? Unfortunately, that ended up with the guy we hired stealing from us…..uggggh.? When will we ever learn to not be so trusting?!? Steve and I both have a problem with that……but when did being “too trusting” become such an extreme character flaw?!!? Sad.? Anyway, the whole situation is under investigation and there are some definite twists to the story that the crime-show-watcher in me would love to share with any other crime-show-watching enthusiasts out there. ;) Hopefully soon.
