Free Pattern Day: Patriotic Quilts

~All of our free pattern days are archived in the FREE PATTERNS tab at the top of this page.~
'Tis the season for red, white and blue ! June 14 is Flag Day, and America's Independence Day is just around the corner.  We've been collecting patriotic quilt patterns (aka Stars and Stripes, Old Glory) and we came up with some great free patterns from all around the country.  We love the clever use of quilted stars, bargellos, rick rack and more (read on) !
