Great Gifts for Anyone Who Loves the Red, White and Blue!
Declare your support for our country and troops with these wonderful “American Pride Potholders.” Use and display these little quilts all year around (we can see them hung in a grouping on the wall!) or bring them out for the 4th of July and summer barbecues.
Patterns are given for four blocks, one for each quilted potholder in the set of four.
“Meaningful events in American history are reflected in the names of the block designs used to make this patriotic set of four pieced pot holders — Boston Tea Party, Revolution, Stars & Stripes and Freedom Rings.”
This is a nice project for all those red and blue fabrics and scraps you probably have on hand. Mix them up for a traditional patchwork look. You might even tea-dye the fabrics for more of an Americana look.
The potholders measure 8″ x 8″ once completed and are quick and easy to sew together. You might consider sewing a border around one or more and displaying them as mini quilts.
You’ll find the “American Pride Potholders” pattern in 101 Fun-to-Quilt Pot Holders.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
