Rachel S. recently finished her version of the Patriotic Star Table Runner & was gracious enough to share pictures with me!

Isn’t it perfect for summer?  I love the sailboats!

Also, take a close look at her quilting.  She did very simple quilting on this runner- just “Stitch in the Ditch” around the stars & then in the border she quilted straight lines.

Many times I show fancy quilting here, but this is a great example of how sometimes fancy quilting isn’t needed or necessary.

I also know that this was part of a UFO competition for her & sometimes simple is better because it helps us finish our projects faster instead of getting caught up in planning “Over the Top Quilting.”

Again, I want to say a special thank you to Rachel for sharing these pictures & encouraging us to work simply so we can finish & enjoy our projects!

Also, you can purchase a copy of this pattern in my Etsy shop!
