This runner is so easy you can make this in one afternoon or evening after work.

Here is what you will need.

Accuquilt Go Rick Rack Die #55056
Star Die #55028
Strip Die 2 1/2" # 55017
Frixon pin
Fabric adhesive of choice - Heat N Bond was used here.
(always follow the directions on your fabric adhesive of choice)
Island Batik Fabrics were used on this runner

Background fabric (white) 12"x 36"
Red fabric for rickrack 11-1/2" x 21"
Blue fabric for stars 6" x 14"
1" strip 24" long (cut in half)
Binding - 2 1/2 strips 2 1/2" by width of fabric

  •  Cut out your background fabric 12" x 36".  Section off the runner 7 1/2" from each end. 
  •  Draw a line.  I don't know if you can see the grid I have drawn here?  Might have to zoom in
  • So you have sectioned off both ends 7 1'2" from the ends.  then draw a line down the middle of the middle section (6" should be the center)
  • Next draw 2" line on both sides of the middle line.
  • Then draw 2" from those lines.  You should have five lines for the rickrack.

Prepare both red and blue fabric by ironing your fabric adhesive of choice to the wrong side of fabric.
.Using your Accuquilt Go cutter, cut the rick rick out of the red.  
 Next cut your Stars out.
                         Place your rick rack down each line you have drawn.  Iron down.    
Next place your 1" strips 12 inches long across the raw edge ends of the rick rack (covering the raw edges)
Place your stars and iron down ( large star in the middle with the smaller ones to the side and up a little).
You can either sandwich your runner (top, batting, backing) pin and then blanket stitch around all of the raw edges ( your quilting will be done at this point)  or you can blanket stitch the raw edges and then sandwich  and quilt as desired.
Binding and you are done.  All ready for Independence day!!       

Hope you enjoy this!

Great job designing and making this, Barb. (I am guessing that you designed it - you are so good at designing things.)
