Joann's has some beautiful patriotic fabric, so much in fact that we purchased enough to make some placemats to sell online. I first selected a the same Patchwork Americana fabric we used on this Historic Barbie Dress but I fell in love with the Inspirational Patriotic fabric with words in old font styles which lead to the fun vintage Pinwheel fabric. Because the Inspirational fabric has so many patriotic sentiments besides Independence day I think these decorations will be out from Memorial Day to 4th of July.

Check back for our next holiday decorations: Summer by the Sea
What I love about our decorations is how with a few changes, I can change the colors and feel of our home. I can switch the pillow cases, placemats, colored candles, LOVE jar items, and stars with the next season's decorations.
Our next season I'll be decorating for is Summer. My husband and I had our first date in August so I'll be decorating with beachy stripes and prints (similar to our first anniversary quilt) to remind us of those great first moments in our relationship.
