4th of July Table Runner

IMGP1127

This was another fabric from my grandma stash. I knew when I picked it out I’d use it to make some kind of 4th of July decoration… but wasn’t sure what until I found this Pleated and Pressed Table Runner tutorial. It’s not a fabric I would typically pick out, but I thought it would be appropriate for something quilted. Here are a few more pics of the finished product:

It was a fun pattern; the pleats were a bit of a pain but not bad after working with a few (I ended up taping them down as I sewed like the tutorial recommended) but overall pretty simple to make! I’d like to make another at some point… maybe in a solid color for everyday. The backing on this one is a piece of a blue sheet that I picked up from goodwill and I ended up using regular fleece instead of batting because that’s what I had on hand. Overall cost ~$3. (SP35)

We’re supposed to have a BBQ at our house on the 4th with my coworkers, but the backyard needs a little love and attention before I’m willing to get a group of people out there :/ So we’ll see how that goes… :)

Also Happy Late Birthday to my Dad! It was yesterday. He didn’t want a birthday party so they had a Belmont Stakes party… complete with a birthday cake ;)
