Is there anything more Americana than a quilt crafted in red, white and blue? Inspired by colors of the American Flag and U.S. Seal, this striking trio has come to hold deep symbolism. The color red represents hardiness and valor, as well as courage and readiness to sacrifice. It is also sometimes said to represent the blood shed by those who have fought to protect our freedom and our country. The color blue signifies justice for all, as well as vigilance and perseverance. A reminder that we must remain watchful and strong. The color white stands for purity and innocence. Pure, because we are independent from other countries and hold true to our ideals. Fun Fact: According to the U.S. Department of State, the flag’s official colors are “Old Glory Red”, “Old Glory Blue” and basic “White”. The exact colors of the American flag are specified in the 10th edition of the Standard Color Reference of America – a textile color swatch book produced by the Color Association of the United States. The classic triad has deep roots in quilting history that have become a foundation for an entire genre of designs to inspire today's makers.
We've brought in a wide fabric selection of red, white and blue beauties for your Americana creations. From traditional Civil War reproductions to more whimsical options, the wagon is loaded! You'll find favorites from Minick and Simpson as well as Primitive Gatherings. New to the shop: Freedom Road
by Kansas Troubles Quilters is as classic as they come, reminiscent of early life on the American Prairie.
