Free Pattern - The Road Home Quilt by Pepper Cory

In time for Memorial Day, this quilt has a beautiful backstory and is the perfect tribute to those who risk their lives defending their country. In the center of the quilt, you will find that the road home leads to a photo of a military family.

In this quilt, Pepper uses Drunkard's path blocks. The pattern also includes templates for star and Liberty Eagle motifs to be used in quilting. 

Pepper says,

"I'm an Air Force brat. My mother coped with five kids during 25 years of nomadic military life, and I know firsthand how difficult it is when someone you love is overseas.

I started envisioning a big quilt in the Road Home pattern. It would be a scrap quilt in many shades of red, blue, and, instead of white, shades of sand to symbolize the Middle East where many American troops are stationed.

After all was said and done, it didn't seem right to sell the pattern for The Road Home. It's my gift to you."
