For summer's patriotic parties!

Here's a new pattern for a "Patriotic Placemat" or table topper that you'll love to use for those summer get-togethers that are coming up soon. This 15" round mat can be used as individual placemats or a collection of toppers for a picnic table centerpiece. Use Warm Company's InsulBright for your batting and they can even be used as trivets for hot dishes.

If you're a machine embroidery enthusiast, we've also digitized the applique star so you can let your machine do the work for you. You can order it here.

Bring on the picnic season!


  1. Patrick , will there be a new quilting celebrations coming out soon?

  2. Looks like your season is in full swing. Here in the Pacific NW it is less than 60 degrees and wet and cold. Maybe someday we can BBQ again this way. HAHA!! Gives me excuse to stay inside and quilt!

  3. We're RV camping at the lake this week and it's 110+. Too hot for a real picnic. I hope you get some good BBQ weather soon! :)

  4. The new fall issue of Quilting Celebrations should be available in most shops and newsstands that carry it by July 3rd! :) You can also see and order it on our website
