Text It! – Project 4 – Freedom Quilt

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this project for some time… This is the Freedom Quilt, the fourth project in Text It and a quilt that is really special to me.

At first glance this quilt might make you feel patriotic, maybe it represents a loved one who has protected our freedom… the definition reads:

noun

the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.

It can also have a meaning that is more personal – Maybe to you it represents a Freedom of expression, a Freedom from addiction, the Freedom to make choices, or the Freedom from fear ~

I’ve been using words in my quilts for some time and I find that it empowers me and lifts me up to focus on these words as I stitch. If you make this quilt you will understand the power in this word more than ever. That is my hope.

We have two quilters sharing their freedom quilts and I am sooooo excited about them!

Tara Miller – The Quilt District

Tara and I have become friends over social media during the planning of this hop. Sounds silly, but I think we bonded over this quilt… I was following her quilt journey on social media, and it was really fun for me to watch it come together. Follow her on instagram where she’s always posting fun sewing tips. Guilds take note – she also teaches workshops and shares her love of vintage quilts, check out this video on her Diamond Lane Workshop. And be sure to check out her Freedom Quilt… I am definitely going to need some of that fabric.

Jen Shaffer – Patterns by Jen

Jen shares her freedom quilt with us and her love of quilting through her blog Patterns by Jen. Her work can be seen in a handful of McCalls Quick Quilts and she caters to new quilters. Jen offers some fun quilt-a-longs, a 2019 Color Challenge, plus workshops and trunk shows with over 30 quilts to share! If you have a love for Moda, her quilt is full of patriotic fabrics from Stillwater and Primative gatherings. See what she’s creating over at Patterns by Jen and find her on instagram here.

    My first thought was how wonderful this quilt would be for “Quilts of Valor”… but you are right, the FREEDOM could be from anything.

    Hi there! I’m visiting from Northwestern Ontario, Canada!

  19. Tambry G

    I agree with the comments regarding Quilts of Valor, but this would also be nice for a Patriotic lap quilt.

    Hello from Wisconsin, and thanks for all the reflections on the word Freedom. Words are certainly powerful, and thought-provoking! This project is certainly meaningful. I pinned this: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/158963061834117614/
