Patriotic Quilt Patterns

Red, white and blue symbolize the colors of the American flag, as well as the perfect colors for a patriotic quilt pattern. Rich in history, patriotic quilts are a way to bring the American spirit into a quilt top and are great quilts to give as well as to keep. Each of the free patriotic quilt patterns below is perfect for decorating your home for Fourth of July, Labor Day or Memorial Day as well as just to commemorate the sacrifices of the troops. If someone in your life is a veteran, a patriotic quilt can be a touching tribute to their contributions and a way to thank them everyday.

If you’re involved in a local charity that provides quilts to the troops and returning veterans like Quilts of Valor, any of these quilt patterns would be lovely for saying thanks to our troops. Patriotic quilt patterns are also perfect for the traditional quilter looking to to work on a quilt pattern with some history behind it. While many patriotic quilts feature starts and similar motifs, others can present the opportunity to try out a new quilting technique.
