Sew Cute with Walmart: American Flag Hanging

What better way to show your Patriotic Pride than by making your own Flag? Memorial Day is coming up, this would be a great conversation piece to talk about at the BBQ!

Follow these steps:

  1. Lay out the quilt on a design wall or the floor. This will make it easier to keep track of piecing.
  2. Sew the squares together into rows. Press the seams in alternate directions to reduce the bulk at the seams.
  3. Sew the rows together until you have completed the runner top. Again, press the seams in alternate directions.

Finishing up your project:

  1. Layer the backing, batting and runner top. Quilt by hand or machine as desired.
  2. Sew binding Strips together to form one long Strip. Fold wrong sides together lengthwise, and press.
  3. With a 1/4" seam, sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the runner. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the runner, and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.\
