Long before Betsy Ross took a stitch in the first official flag of the United States of America, flags and banners were waving in the breeze atop flagstaffs. Sometimes it was the commander's wife stitching a banner by candlelight. Sometimes it was the commander himself sewing a flag around which his troops could rally.
Unsung and unknown, men and women stitched stripes and stars and patches together to create symbols of freedom. Like knights of old, patriots carried their banners into battle, willing to give all to live in a country free of oppression.
Jan Patek and her husband both had fathers who made a career in the military. Jan has translated her love and pride of country into this marvelous quilt, Flags of the American Revolution. Stitch this piece of Americana for your own home or choose from one of the many projects offered such as the wool Flag Table Rug, Jake's Eagles or the Stars and Stripes wall hanging.

Jan Patek of Jan Patek Quilts began quilting 28 years ago when she quit working to be a stay-at-home mom. With her high energy level and bottomless pit of ideas, she was afraid she would be bored. Dozens of books and patterns later, boredom hasn't been a problem.
Jan began making art quilts to express her creative spirit. She then began to publish patterns to help pay for her fabric fetish. Her first "Snowbound" quilt evolved from a combination of patterns and designs one year when her children requested a Christmas quilt. Her patterns, books and fabric have been big sellers ever since.
Jan Patek and Linda Brannock began designing fabric for United Notions in 1992. They have an extensive line of brushed homespuns and prints under the Moda label. The prints come in a large range of sizes and patterns. The brushed cotton homespuns add texture and coordinate with the prints nicely.
Jan's love of family and the creative process have combined to influence her art. Each of her quilts makes a statement to which we can all relate. Her "Angel" quilt represents the need for guardian angels. Other work represents the strong bond of family and friends. The quilts are a story of her life, her experiences, and her soul.
