These patriotic items have been in the works since May.
|The firework fabric almost sparkles like real fireworks|
This block is from a Spectacular Star Table Runner free tutorial from Lindsey Weight at The Fort Worth Fabric Studio Blog. She truly has so many beautiful and wonderful tutorials that I plan to make someday!
|I was going to make the Spectacular Star Table Runner but then decided to add triangle borders and make multiple table toppers or wall hangings to share.|
Pattern revision notes for future reference.
|Make all the units as shown below and lay out into this configuration and sew together. The center of the star is a 3 1/2" square.|
|Make 4 flying geese. Cut (1) 4 1/4" square and Cut (4) 2 1/2" squares. Draw a diagonal line on each 2 1/2" square. Use the flying geese no waste method here.|
Make 4 of these units. Cut (4) 2 5/8" centers and to create a square in a square, Cut (4) of the two colors 2 1/2" squares and then cut in half diagonally. Sew triangles to each side of white square as shown. Square up the unit to be 3 1/2"
