Patriotic Little Bars

Little Bars 2

Project 8 from Fast, Fun, and More Gifty (46386) features the Patriotic Little Bars quilt that is SO fun, and SO easy to make for a quickie gift at the last minute. Of course you can make this from any fabric that inspires you, but our Patriotic Minis collection is sure cute! The only fabric that requires a sizable amount is the background, and that really is not very much!

Patriotic Minis 2 I think this collection is darling and our neighbor, Canada, is also center stage to the Little Quilt!

These little bars are VERY little at 1″ x 2″, and are a great way to spotlight a scrap of favorite fabric you just couldn’t get rid of because you loved it so much. It’s also a great way of diving into a 2-1/2″ mini charm pack that you’ve been itching to use! How’s that for a good excuse?! HA! Go for it!

The project is located on page 48 in the book, and there are a couple of alternate colorways, so visualizing Patriotic Little Bars in your fabrics might be more doable. Anyhoo, making this in Christmas fabrics would be darling as well. You just can’t go wrong with the featured project this week!!! Wahoo! Enjoy!

    Cute and would definitely be a good use of scraps. Looks modern too because of its simplicity.

    This is adorable! I was wondering if CT would consider making the pattern from the kit for the table runner using these fabrics, that resembled a US flag, available for purchase. I’d be happy to pay for a copy of the pattern…
