Fourth Of July Stitching - Part Two

The Fourth Of July is less than one week away! 

I wanted to share an update on my stitching project.  You may remember this project, {my first post about it is here} if not, I explained that I am making a small table cloth.

Since that last post, I have transferred the Fourth of July motifs I wanted to use and selected my floss colors.  The three main colors I am using are red - DMC #349, white - DMC Blanc, and blue - DMC#820.  I love this particular color, it is such a rich, deep blue. 

All the extra steps I took in laying out the motifs on this tablecloth have really paid off, everything is nicely lined up.  Especially these star bunting borders - I have four of them, one on each side of the cloth.

For the edge, I am experimenting with a running stitch in the blue floss.  So far I am really happy with it!

Hopefully, I will be back before the 4th with another update on this project!
