The Block is Simple to Make and Can be Used Many Ways!

Whether it’s Flag Day, Memorial Day, the 4th of July, Veterans Day, or even election day, this charming flag is perfect for the occasion. It will be great in a Quilt of Valor, too.

One flag block can be finished into a small quilt and hung on a wall or displayed on a table. A throw pillow featuring the block will be a nice pop of color for your home, as well.

Make several for use as placemats, or combine them into a runner, table topper, or a larger quilt. The block is simple to make and a fun way to show off your favorite red, white, and blue prints.

4th of July Flag Block Tutorial

Start by making the star block. While it works beautifully in the flag, it’s a lovely block to use on its own or in other projects. Simply add red and white stripes to turn the star into a flag block.

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).
