American Anthem Table Set by Studio E

from Studio E

This pattern was first available back in 2015, an oldie but a goodie!

I love how the designer used a striped fabric around the stars in the table runner. Lots of visual interest with no extra piecing. So smart!

Blue Constellation by Osie Lebowitz for Timeless Treasures

from Timeless Treasures

A very simple design with few blocks to piece. 

An ideal place to showcase your favorite blues.

This sample is made from prints in the Honor collection from Tonga Batiks.

Bursting with Courage by Denise Russel of Pieced Brain for Timeless Treasures

from Timeless Treasures

The block in this design is called 'Rocky Mountain Chain' and you'll find directions to make it here on the website.

Sashing between the blocks means there's little match. 

What a striking patchwork design.

The sample uses fabric from the Honor collection from Tonga Batiks.

Country Stars by Wendy Sheppard for Windham 

from Windham

Stylized American flags alternate with large Sawtooth Stars to form this bold edge to edge design.

Three cheers for the Red-White-Blue!

Flag of Valor by Minick & Simpson for Moda

from Moda

I just love how the designers let the blue and white star fabric do all the work. Saves a whole lot of piecing or applique time.

The Sawtooth stars are turned on-point to add a bit of dazzle to this creation.

Flag Table Runner by Wendy Sheppard 

from Windham

Measure your table first, this is a wide one.

The field of stars is constructed from a variation of the Dutchman's Puzzle block that is shared here on the website.

If you'd prefer to paper piece these blocks, you'll find a free 4" finished pattern to download there. The links to those printable patterns are in the Cutting Chart, the row highlighted in yellow.

Flags on Parade by Natalie Crabtree - FREE

from Windham


With Sawtooth and Ohio Stars and a bit of strip and partial seam piecing, you have a captivating quilt that magnificently celebrates our Old Glory.

A rousing design by Natalie Crabtree.

Find that luscious ombre—that really makes this quilt—in the Americana line by Whistler Studios.

Gnome of the Brave Tableset by Heidi Pridemore for Henry Glass

from Henry Glass

Table Runner: 22 ¾” x 64”

Place Mat: 14” x 18”

Want to add a little Americana to your tablescape?

Then this simple pattern is the one for you. Sawtooth Stars and a bit of strip piecing. You'll be taking your last stitch in the binding in no time.

Fabrics from the Gnome of the Brave line by Shelly Comiskey are used in the samples.

Hot Tamale for Riley Blake Designs

for Riley Blake

Not your Grandma's patriotic quilt design, right?! ;)

I just love how the designer has split up the Lone Star. 

A very dramatic look done all in reds and white. 

Will you put a dash of blue in yours?

Liberty by Carrie Quinn for Penny Rose Fabrics

from Penny Rose Fabrics

Remember to set 'Page Scaling' to 'None' or print at '100%" for these free printable patriotic quilt patterns. 

For this design, you want to be sure that the included applique templates are the correct size.

Liberty Star Banner by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass

from Henry Glass
Fat Quarter Friendly icon
Fat 1/8 friendly icon

This Confident Beginner friendly quilt can be used as either a table runner or a wall hanging. 

The folded or connector corners technique is use so that even with all those points, you're starting with cut squares and rectangles.

Rippling Flags by Natalie Crabtree for Whistler Studios

from Whistler Studios


This pattern uses Bargello-style strip piecing to get the piecing done. You'll need to label strips as you go to keep them all in order.

Don't you just love how the ombre red-white-blue fabric makes it look like there's so much more piecing in this quilt than there really is?

Americana by Whistler Studios  supplies all the color.

Rising Stars by Denniele Bohannon 

from Timeless Treasures

Though the sample for this pattern is in rainbow colors, can't you just see it in patriotic reds, whites, and blue?

It's just two basic blocks. A Rail Fence alternating with a Sawtooth Star.

Imagination. Passion. Creativity. It's Timeless.

Salute to the Stars by Janet Houts 

from Andover


This design is constructed from two different 12" finished block patterns.

It's the fabric choices that make it sing, 'Patriotic'!

The sample is imagined using prints from Andover's collection, Star Spangled.

Star Sparklers by Nan Baker 

from Timeless Treasures

Alternating blocks that finish at 12" make this patriotic patchwork fairly quick to piece.

What looks like 2 Flying Geese stacked on each other is really 4 half square triangles.

If you'd prefer to paper piece them as pairs of Flying Geese, you'll find instructions/patterns to make 4" finished units in the Arrowhead block tutorial, under Step 1. Choose the 4" finished units. You'll need to revise the cutting chart in this complimentary  download from Timeless Treasures.

Starry Blue by Natalie Crabtree for Whistler Studios

from Whistler Studios


A nice size for a table topper or small wall hanging.

The true clincher for this pattern is that the ombre stripe from Americana by Whistler Studios does most of the work in the center star. 

It takes just 4 (extremely) large diamonds to make each of the 8 diamonds to make it.

Stars & Stripes Forever by Heidi Pridemore for Studio E

from Studio E


  • Table Runner: 50” x 14”
  • Place Mat: 16” x 11”

Perfect for when you want to add a bit of festivity to your home but haven't the time or inclination to make a big quilt.
