As we begin Memorial Day weekend, the classic red, white, and blue color scheme is popping up everywhere. Yes, even in red, white, and blue quilts! Free patriotic quilt patterns are among our most popular offerings, so I know you’ll enjoy this week’s Friday Freebie. It’s been a favorite of mine since it first appeared on the cover of the June/July 2015 issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts. Here is Hometown USA by Cheryl Almgren Taylor, now a free quilt pattern for you to enjoy!
It’s amazing how such a small quilt (32 1/2″ x 36 1/2″) can be such a powerful presence. The clear red, white, and blue sections catch the eye, and the cute little village holds your attention as you take in all its scrappy charm. This is an Americana quilt at its very best, sweet and simple. And it’s fast enough to make over a long weekend, if you’re so inclined!
