Fourth of July inspirations...goals

I currently only  have 2 red, white and blue tablerunners. Not-a-single quilt in red, white and blue.
That makes me blue. {huge sigh}
So here are some inspirations for 4th of July decorations for you...and me.
Maybe it will get me fired up to make some decor this month!!
Jody of Pleasant Home made this super duper table runner...that I most certainly HAVE to make...

Tip Junkie has a TON of ideas :)


Or an online shop Plow and Hearth....

Maybe I can dig out some of my Minick and Simpson stash and make one of these?
Or some primary red, white and blue fat quarters from my stash?
I'm going to make atleast one 4th of July project this month. Atleast one.
And I know I have red grosgrain ribbon around here too...wonder what I could do with that?

You are like me, no Fourth of July decorations to speak of. But we are always flying a flag. Can't wait to see what you will come up with.

Thank you for all the eye candy. I tell myself every year that this will be the year I make a patriotic quilt.... maybe next year :o(

Life seems to get really busy in summer and I run out of time.

Ooooh, I hadn't thought to make some July 4th items...my to-do list is growing! Love that table runner, and even I might actually get that done!!! Thanks for the inspiration!

I love Jody's tablerunner too. I don't have any 4th July decorations either. But I'm really not into decorating for the holidays. Every year I say I'm going to do it and every year, I don't! Can't wait to see what you create.

You know there are many quilters with the same dilema! That's why Minick & Simpson did this cheater in red, white and blue! http://www.etsy.com/listing/41387014/bar-harbor-triangles-fabric-red-white
Such a fast and easy 4th of July quilt!

You could always lay your table runner over the foot of your bed over a white duvet cover a la fancy spa hotels -

Great ideas and I agree, Jodi's table runner is beautiful.
