Hang It on a Wall or Give it to a Soldier!
This beautiful quilt is a wonderful reminder of all we hold dear: freedom, peace, liberty and family. The red, blue and tan color palette gives the quilt an antique look, which works beautifully with its design and message. It’s not hard to imagine that this quilt harkens back to the Civil War era, or even the first days of our country.
While we love the colors used by the designer, brighter, more modern fabrics will be wonderful too. The message is just as appropriate today as it was back in the days of the founding fathers (and mothers!).
A center medallion is surrounded by pieced stars. Borders at the top and bottom have fusible appliqued stars and lettering.
The finished quilt, designed by Pat Sloan, is 54″ x 66″. Learn more about the quilt here.

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!
