Patriotic quilt patterns are among the most popular designs we publish. There’s something so perfect about red, white, and blue quilts with that Americana feel. And FREE patriotic quilt patterns…well, that’s even better! That’s why I’m sure you’ll enjoy this week’s Friday Freebie, a lap size version of Cottage Charm by Karin Janssen-Potter:
This simple two-block design combines Sawtooth Stars and Monkey Wrench Blocks to create a sparkling quilt with a lovely chain effect.
Karin’s original extra-long twin size quilt in this design is patterned in the January/February 2016 issue of McCall’s Quilting magazine. We liked it so much, we decided to resize the design to fit the requirements for a Quilt of Valor, since so many of our readers are involved in making quilts for service members and veterans.
Here’s Karen’s quilt from the magazine. I LOVE this summery photo! I’ll be dreaming of porch sitting all winter long.
Download the Cottage Charm lap quilt pattern now…it’s a Friday FREEbie.
