A Quick Project That Even Beginning Quilters Can Complete!
These Americana flag place mats are perfect for patriotic holidays, or display them all summer long. They’ll add a wonderfully festive touch to your 4th of July table.
Dig into your stash and pull out low-contrast red and whites, then find a blue with stars. You’ll have them stitched up into place mats before you know it.
The strips start at 2″ wide and are cut to length after being stitched together. That makes this a super easy project, especially since the mats are turned instead of being bound.
Add a thin batting and stitch in the ditch, or omit the batting for a quicker finish.
The completed place mats, from The Prairie Cottage, are about 14 1/2″ x 17 1/2″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
