I am a proud American, and I love to quilt. Tomorrow is election day. I will share some patriotic quilts for the shear enjoyment of living in America. No, the USA is not perfect, but it is a wonderful place and my home. So here are some “Love America” quilts.
Quilt Show 2014
These are some patriotic quilts I saw at the AQS quilt show in Paducah, KY in April 2014. And more quilts from that show.
Crazy quilt blocks
Our great country is a land of immigrants and a “melting pot” of cultures, traditions, languages, and races. We have a rich heritage and people from around the world continue to immigrate here. For those who come legally, work, and contribute to your community – thank you.
I made this lap quilt many years ago because of a piece of fabric that I purchased and then did not know what to do with. The USA is a lot like the “crazy” blocks of this quilt – all mixed together, but beautiful. “LOVE AMERICA” QUILTS come in all designs and sizes.
Pre-printed “cheater” quilt blocks
I am a big fan of George Washington. No, he was not perfect, but he was a man willing to risk it all for “birthing” this country. I choose to concentrate on the good things he did in life.
Another George Washington themed quilt that uses the remaining printed square from the above quilt.
I like to use pre-printed blocks in quilts. They are fun to work with and come in so many different themes. Over several years I purchased patriotic “cheater” blocks. This quilt is named “Freedom” and is the pre-printed blocks mixed with strips of patriotic fabrics.
“Heart of America” made from one panel and some patriotic fabric.
This quilt is named “Flags & Teddy Bears” because of the border print. It was a fun and easy project to make.
Our great country was “birthed” through the Christian values and hard work of people willing to take the opportunity provided and make something of it. The opportunity to excel is the same for all of us – what we choose to do with that life chance is up to each individual person. The results are not the same or equal, but we all have the opportunity to attempt equal results.
I hope you enjoyed this “LOVE AMERICA” QUILTS show. Patriotic quilts come in all designs and sizes. Have fun and make a quilt to show your American pride.
