Looking for a way to spice up your 4th of July table this year?  I was so, I created this table runner.

Here’s a tutorial on how to make this fun Quilted Firework Table Runner:
You will need:
  • 1 piece of red fabric- 11″ x 13 1/2″
    1 piece of blue fabric- 11 x 13 1/2″
    1 piece of white or cream fabric- 18″ x 13 1/2″
    2 borders of light blue fabric-  3 1/2″ x 45″
    1 package of red medium rick rack (2 1/2 yards)
    3 yards of blue 1/8 inch ribbon
    thread that matches the ribbon
    assorted fabric for 8 small stars and 5 large stars in reds and blues (I used six different fabrics– all scraps!)
    red fabric for center circle- 2 3/4″ wide
    Wonder Under
    1/4 yard red fabric for binding
    5/8 yard fabric for backing
    quilt batting

I got a little carried away with the photos and instructions, but i did list them all here if anyone is interested in the pattern.  http://makeitdo.wordpress.com/2009/06/26/fireworks-in-the-kitchen/

Now I can't wait for the holiday!
