I love this cute little Stars & Stripes Candle Mat Pattern by Farmhouse Threads. I have eyed this pattern several times and couldn’t resist it any longer. It is such a quick and easy project a beginner could make. It would also make a wonderful gift if I could part with it.

I used scraps that were left over from projects sewn in the Hometown Summer collection. The pattern calls for wool stars and I did use wool because I have a lot of it at home but I think it would be just as cute using regular cotton fabric for the appliqué.

(Mini runner shown is Freedom Flag.)

I’ll display it all through summer until I change my decorations to fall. The problem is I keep moving it around I like it so much! It started out on the table and ended up on my Wire Table Stand.

    Very festive, good job finishing your projects for 4th of July. I wasn’t quite as on top of it as you were.

    This will fit in my living room perfectly. But you should see my UFO pile!!! 2 of them are QOV quilts that need to be sandwiched and quilted. I had wanted to present them to the grandmother at church when they had the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” presentation. Missed that opportunity. I promise they will get done between gifts galore!!!!!
