Patriotic Quilt Pattern and Tablerunner – Free Pattern and Video Tutorial

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, so to celebrate in style, we’re bringing you two FREE quilt patterns for your home and table.

Get ready for this patriotic flag quilt! The Stars, Stripes and Dots Quilt commands attention at a generous 65.5″ x 85.5″. The FREE Stars, Stripes, and Dots Quilt Pattern is beginner-friendly and sure to impress.

Our quilt is shown here in Essential Dots and Solids by Essentially Yours for Moda Fabrics. You can sew one just like it with the Stars, Stripes, and Dots Quilt Kit and Backing Set.

The half-square triangles that form the stars and stripes are made more perfect with Triangles on a Roll triangle paper. By pinning fabric strips to the paper and sewing along the pre-marked lines, you can save time drawing lines on individual squares for HST units. You don’t have to use triangle paper, but we love how speedy it makes the whole process.

  1. As the Momma of an active duty sailor, may I respectfully suggest going through the many free pattern options on the Fat Quarter Shops free pattern page? While the featured quilt and pattern in this post is beautiful it would not be a good choice for a Quilt of Valor. Maybe not everyone is aware that the United State flag is used to drape the coffins of our fallen military hero’s. Imagine the loved ones coming into their loved ones hospital rooms seeing a quilt so similar to our nations flag draped over their loved ones bed. Trust me the military members, their parents, families and loved ones are painfully aware of the meaning behind a flag draping our sons and daughters. It’s not the quilt we want comforting them as they fight for their lives from whatever type or physical or emotional traumas they’ve experienced.

    Here are a couple options, there are many more on FQS’s page of free patterns. Under the Moda category maybe use Sunny Side up with patriotic solids and prints to make those stars pop (You’ll need to reduce by 1 row and column to fit size restrictions)! From the Cotton + Steel category maybe the Trip Around the World pattern again in patriotic prints and solids. From the Robert Kaufman category Spinning Geese is the perfect size for a Quilt of Valor and The Cat in the Hat is near perfection in size. It just needs some patriotic prints.

    Should you chose to look for a different pattern here are the size guidelines from QOV- A Quilt of Valor is to be large enough to cover an average-sized adult, with an ideal size approximately 60” x 80.” Finished size can be no smaller than 55” x 65” and no larger than 72” x 90.” Also keep in mind no fabrics with sparkles or glitter as this can cause problems with various types of wounds etc.

    Thank you to all those who have continued to make QUILTS OF VALOR for our military men and women!

    1. Thank you Kimberly. I edited the post to remove that mention of QOV. I can see why that would not be an ideal quilt design for a veteran. Appreciate your feedback!
