This versatile Stars 'n' Stripes quilt or tablecloth is perfect as a patriotic holiday embellishment for your home or just to make a statement of American pride any time of year. Instructions are included for both a queen size quilt with batting or a tablecloth size without batting.

Homespun fabric is great to craft and sew with because the yard dyed fabric is the same on both sides. There is no front or back. Tear your leftover homespun scraps into strips to embellish your other craft projects with cute torn bows or browse our weekend project ideas for a fun way to recycle your left overs.
Materials List for Stars ‘n' Stripes Quilt/Tablecloth:
