3 Ways to Make a Patriotic Quilt

Regardless of your political beliefs, I think most of us can agree that if it weren’t for the hundreds of thousands of people who have been willing to serve in the military to protect our homeland, America would not be what it is today. I have such high regard for the amazing service men and women, and I wanted to make some patriotic quilts to express my respect and appreciation.

Modern One-Block Quilts // quilt pattern book review

Modern One Block Quilts Book Review

If you are a quilter, I am sure you know that there are myriad ways to obtain an awesome quilt pattern, but not all are the same quality!

I have been through phases where I was too thrifty to purchase patterns and chose to only make quilts if I could find a FREE pattern for it. This method actually introduced me to some of my favorite quilt patterns, but it also resulted in a handful of headaches. The thing about free patterns is that there is often far less thought, effort, and testing that goes into those patterns. This is not always the case, but I ran into a couple doozies that required me to waste fabric and do my own quilt math, which did not thrill me.

The book comes complete with 22 different patterns in 3 different sizes (baby, twin, and queen) — that’s 66 variations for one low price, costing less than a couple yards of fabric! Continue Reading →
