Patriotic Topper 2024

 Every year for I don't know how long, 
I've made my siblings a
Patriotic table runner or topper.
It began as an honor to our dad,
who was one of the most patriotic people I know.
This year I used a pattern my sister found and loved.
The pattern is free from Quilters Newsletter
and is called "Firework Flag".

I loved the idea of this quilt,
but didn't like that the flag was square.
After extending the striped side of the quilt,
I quilted the pieces before trimming
and decided to leave the top and bottom edges wavy.

These took some time to make,
but I really love the finish.
My siblings liked them, too!

Happy Quilting!

What a neat design! I like that you kept the wavy edges to make it more unique.
