Love the idea of a patriotic placemat, and the blue used in this design could go with many color schemes. It also would,look cool in red with a blue border, which would be more work, but also look more like the Fourth celebration. Or perhaps use a red pocket to contrast with the blue. The pocket is a nice practical touch! Super!
