New Quilt Pattern: Stars and Bars

Introducing Stars and Bars, a quilt runner quilt pattern. 
Pick your yardage, fat quarters, or scraps and choose one of three sizes to make - 
15" x 36", 15" x 54", or 15" x 72".
Pattern available in shop here.

Thrilled to be releasing the Stars and Bars Quilt Pattern today, too late for the Fourth but perfect for continued July sewing. (I can't be the only one who loves to sew red, white and blue all summer, right?)

This quilt table runner is made with a simple repeating block comprised of a strip bar unit and an Ohio Star block - simple yet striking.

Before making this runner I had never made quarter-square triangles. Not as scary as I thought : ) If you need any help learning these simple little units, I highly recommend the following tutorials by a couple of very talented quilters. 

The blues and reds of Sweet Tea by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics are perfect for summertime. So much fun making with these fabrics. I might have a couple more quilts planned for this fabric line : )

Simple straight line quilting for my finish.

Stars and Bars isn't exclusively for patriotic colors. Check out this sample done up in Early Bird by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics.

Or this beauty in Sugarcreek by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics.
