Looking for patriotic quilt patterns? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve gathered together five of our favorite red, white and blue patterns for you. And… it gets better… they’re all free! The first three patterns are all included in our Free Summer Quilts ebook, while the other two are available as individual free downloads. These patriotic patterns are perfect for infusing some red, white and blue into your quilting for the Fourth of the July or anytime of the year. We have throw quilts, a table runner and a mini quilt, so there’s plenty of variety for you. Of course, some of the patterns are also perfect to make for a veteran you know or to donate to an organization like the Quilts of Valor® Foundation.
Star Spangled quilt pattern: Light up your kitchen table with shining stars this summer. Each block on this red, white and blue table runner designed by QM content director Carolyn Beam is one half of a star. The finished size is 11 3/8” x 34”, but it’s easy to make in any length you want — just add more blocks/setting triangles to each side.
Star Harbor quilt pattern: Nestle beneath a starry summertime sky with this lovely throw quilt designed by Eileen Fowler. Two different star blocks set on point create a unique secondary design. The finished size of this quilt is 58 1/2” x 72 1/2”.
Life’s a Picnic quilt pattern: Simple blocks paired with patriotic machine embroidery create this festive quilt designed by Kim Hanson. The quilt finishes at 61 1/2” x 61 1/2”.
Homeland quilt pattern: Easy triangle-squares are arranged as a stylized American flag complete with stars and stripes in this mini quilt. A free web bonus from McCall’s Quilting, the pattern is based on a design by Candy Hargrove. When choosing fabrics, look for prints in each of the three color families that incorporate colors from the other two in order to maintain a controlled scrappy look. Finished size is 26 1/2” x 31 1/2”.
American Independence quilt pattern: This free traditional quilt pattern from Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting was designed by Karen Witt. It’s perfect for anyone looking for a nice pattern to create with reproduction fabrics. The design finishes at 66” x 90”.
