When I saw the Southfields table runner pattern in the Tabletastic! 2 book, I immediately thought it would be a great design to use with some patriotic fabric for a Fourth of July display. I gathered up some various red, white & blue prints I had been saving for just this type of project. It was a week before the Fourth at this point, but I was hopeful I could get it done in time! Of course other things got in the way and here we are in August. Let’s not call this late for Fourth of July 2021, but instead, really early for 2022! 🙂
I arranged my fabrics similarly to what was shown in the pattern — forming a gradient-like effect with dark blues in the corner squares going to lighter colors in the middle on each side. Planning and arranging the fabric probably took the longest, after that piecing it together went smoothly. I think it turned out well and gives out the festive vibe I was hoping for!
