It’s time for another sneak peek, and today we’re thrilled to give you a look at the new Americana themed collection,Let Freedom Soar, designed by Tara Reed.
Patriotic art and fabric can hold many meanings depending on who is looking at it, or is, in this case, sewing or quilting with it. It might be a way to honor the military with a Quilt of Valor or perhaps used to decorate a home for the 4th of July. Maybe it’s a way to show one’s patriotism or to celebrate a newly naturalized citizen.
We are completely smitten with the Multi Quilt Blocks print! Tara artfully designed this print to look like teeny tiny quilt blocks in stars, strips, and solid red, white and blue. So fun!
Take a closer look at the Text print. The distressed lettering features phrases easily recognized in America: “1776,” “America the Beautiful,” and “Land of the Free, Because of the Brave.” The Text print will be available in Blue (shown here), Red, and Off White.
Don’t you love a good border stripe? This strips has the little Martha Washington Star and Ohio Star quilt blocks alongside repeats of the American Flag. Beautiful!
Of course, we had to share a peek at the fun little stars. Tara’s Stars print features solid stars mixed with star outlines on a textured background, for a look that’s has a lovely movement and depth to it. The Stars print comes in Off White (shown here), Red, and Blue.
Let Freedom Soar also includes this gorgeous Faith, Family & Friends fabric panel depicting a majestic bald eagle perched in front of an American flag. Add borders with blocks or individual fabric prints for a beautiful, festive quilt.
We can’t wait to start creating with Let Freedom Soar! We’re dreaming up quilts, bags, pillows, table runners and more. What will you make with Let Freedom Soar?
