Free Patriotic Quilt Patterns


Whether it is to honor a loved one, a current veteran, or a special patriotic holiday, patriotic quilts will always hold a special place in my heart.

I like to feature my free patriotic quilt patterns posts on Memorial Day, Veteran's Day, Flag Day, and of course...the 4th of July..but really and truly, I am always working through a stack of patriotic quilts blocks and letting the collection grow and grow so I can whip up a quick quilt when needed.

Honor your loved ones, honor your country, make a  patriotic quilt filled with honor, pride, and service.





In honor of our soldiers (both at home and abroad) our ever-present patriotism and in the spirit of good work and service that so many do in our country..... here's my collection of over 100 links to free quilt or quilt block patterns. In includes some that are traditional, some that date back to the Civil War, and some amazing and wonderful stars, stripes, flags and even service banners!
