I’m always a sucker for red, white, and blue. It’s a color combination that never goes out of style. Here I’ve put together an updated list of lots of fun ideas for patriotic sewing and quilting projects, perfect for the 4th of July. A variety of styles, sizes, and experience levels. Some patterns are free project tutorials, others are quilt patterns for purchase, but there’s definitely something for everyone!
Quilts with US Flag Designs
Last year I updated my Free Patchwork Flag Quilt Tutorial with a patchwork star field option. This one comes together fast and is great for using leftover scraps and precuts too.
Star sampler version of Fly the Flag quilt pattern – available in Paper or PDF – here. This is a great “choose your own adventure” quilt with lots of variations based on how many stars you want to make. And if you don’t have time to piece the star field blocks this quilt comes together super fast.
This year I’ve also got a new version of the Fly the Flag quilt made this year with my Portsmouth fabric collection. There are still kits available for this quilt too from Connecting Threads and various shops on Etsy.
Stars and Stripe Pillow and Table Runner tutorial – free pattern with video demonstration and printable PDF.

My Land That I Love Medallion Quilt Pattern is a quilt I’ve made in multiple different versions. One bright version and others more “beachy” and washed out. I just made a new version in Portsmouth as well.

Red, White, and Blue Quilt Ideas
Here’s an example of how any quilt pattern made with red, white, and blue fabrics can be a perfect summer/4th of July quilt. This is my Summer Bunting pattern.
Another example is this Sugarhouse Star quilt – available in Baby, Throw, and King size options. This version is also made with my Portsmouth collection. More information on fabric and kits available here.
