My Red, White, and Blue Quilts

Friday, July 1, 2022

Hey friend.  I've been meaning to share with you all of my 
red, white, and blue quilts - together in one place.  
Hopefully, if you're wanting to make a
patriotic quilt, you'll find some inspiration here!


First up is my Star-Spangled Pineapples quilt.
This is a free pattern that Amanda Niederhauser (@jedicraftgirl) 
and I created for our Five Fat Quarter Fun series a few years ago.


HERE is a link to the free PDF pattern and
HERE is a link to the original blog post with more photos and details.


Next up are my beachy, faded Stars and Stripes quilt
and my No-Point Stars quilt.


Both of these patterns are by other quilt pattern designers.
Stars and Stripes is by Camille Roskelly of Thimbleblossoms and it's available
in her shop HERE.  The No-Point Stars pattern is a free tutorial by
Allison Harris of Cluck, Cluck, Sew.  You can find it HERE.
I don't have blog posts up yet about my versions.
I want to share more details so I'll do that soon in another, separate post.

Another red, white, and blue quilt that I made
many years ago is my Scrap Jar Stars quilt.


This is a great stash buster project!
This pattern comes with instructions for 4 different size quilts
and is available in my Etsy shop HERE.

One last red, white, and blue quilt I've made is my United quilt.  


It has 50 really simple flag blocks (to represent the 50 states) 
plus 5 stars and a heart block!  It's a fun make and very beginner-friendly!
United finishes at 78-1/2" x 87-1/2".
You can find the pattern in my Etsy shop HERE.

I also think it would be cute to layer any patriotic quilts
with a simple red or blue quilt (like the ones that I made for my new book,
Quilt the Rainbow).

You can find both of those patterns in Quilt the Rainbow; available HERE.

I feel like you can never have too many red, white, and blue quilts!
In fact, I'm making another one right now using my 
Sawtooth Stars cutting chart (stay tuned!)  

I hope you found some inspiration here today!
Happy July friends!

  1. Love the Red White and Blue quilts. This year I'm making table runners and pillow covers for each month, all from my stash. Next year I'm hoping to make a quilt for each month to put on the backnof our loveseat

  2. Thank you for mentioning your Sawtooth Star chart... that brought me to this delightful blog post! I don't have any patriotic quilts (yet) but I'm nearly done with all my flags for Camille's flag quilt... and I'm eager to make a star quilt like the one you posted yesterday for the Fourth. Your work is beautiful! Thank you for your kind, generous heart!! ~ Mama Pris ❤️

    1. Thank you for purchasing my new book; I'm so glad you love it! I am trying to figure out how to let people receive my blog posts via email...Blogger took away that option a couple years ago so I need to find a new, outside source to help me with that. Thank you for the reminder that I need to do that! I will get on it!
