Take Quilted Pride in Your Country!
I love this America The Beautiful wall hanging to quilt from Seasons & Reasons to Celebrate by Tracy MacKay! From the mountains, to the prairies, to the oceans—all in fabric!
Designer Debbie Mumm’s Homecomings book has a whole patriotic quilty/crafty section called Independence Day Celebrations. It features a Liberty Lap Quilt, Sand Candles, Americana Wall Quilt, Nine-Patch Pillow, Lone Star Pillows, Americana Door Banner, Patriotic Flowerpot, and a Star Spangled Pillow. (And as a special bonus, check out our free instant download version of Debbie’s Nine-Patch Pillow pattern from Homecomings!)
Or how about a great Tried & True Birthday Stars Table Runner from the pages of the Best of Fons & Porter Tabletop Quilts?
Crochet Your Patriotism!
Celebrate the flag with this Stars and Stripes afghan by Anne Halliday from our Afghan Lover’s Collection. It‘s worked in strips, so it makes a nice take-along project.

Somebody expecting a new baby in July? Here‘s a couple of red, white, and blue baby afghans to crochet:
This one’s from A Year of Baby Afghans, Book 4, design by Becky Stevens.
And this one’s from A Year of Baby Afghans, Book 5. It’s another great design by Anne Halliday.
Celebrate Freedom in Cross Stitch!
If you’d like a simple cross stitch piece that would work up in no time, check out Freedom from Stamp ’N Stitch Holidays. You just stamp the stars and stripes, cross stitch the word, frame it, and you’re done!
Rather work on a cross stitch design that’ll take a little more effort? Take a look at Old Glory by Kathy Elrod from The Best of Cross Stitch Basics. Our version was worked on 28 ct fabric with Sampler Threads!
Feeling inspired and all patriotic yet?
