Police Patch Quilt

When my customer first approached me about having this quilt made, he had the collection of patches and wanted a quilt made with them. With some great suggestions from my friend Alva this is what we came up with. Do you have a collection of patches that you are interested in having made into a quilt?

  1. What a great idea. I love the way you’ve placed the coordinating accent squares in the sashing 🙂

    What an original idea – so clever. Years ago, I quilted one sorta like it, with patches saved from vacations visiting National Parks

    What an original idea – so clever. Wish I had seen this one before I made one sorta like it years ago using patches collected from visiting National Parks. Yours is way too cool!

    I work for a police department and many of the officers collect patches. This is a great way to display them.

    What a wonderful sentiment! I LOVE this! I don’t know any police officers, tho, so, I’m thinking, “Wow, something to do with all those bowling patches stuffed away!” 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    Great Job….My husband is a PO and I had a hard time finding fabric with police related items and finally found some last year…made a quilt , attic windows for them to raffle off for a police scholarship but for some reason they never did the raffle so I kept it for my husband but this definitely is a good idea…He has some patches …That would make a great quilt to raffle off to make some money for one of their causes……I like the bowling patch idea too!!!

  17. In 2008 I made on kind of like that with all my son’s boyscout patches. It was a gift for him when he recieved his Eagle scout award. But I like how the different colors were used in this one. Great job.

    What a wonderful way to display a collection of police patches! When my husband retired, I had the patches from the departments which he had worked for during his 35 + year career framed. When I showed him this he really liked it! It’s not only a work of art but a labor of love…

    Hi! I want to make my daughter a similar quilt with her patch collection! Did you put stabilizer behind the patches? What size are the blocks? Any help would be appreciated! thanks!

    Hi Sandra, No I didn’t need to use stabilizer, I used invisible thread and a zig zag stitch to apply it was really easy I think the blocks were about 6″ I would base you block size on your biggest patch.

    Wow, this is just amazing. I would love to do one than donate it to a fundraising event for BackStoppers or something to help raise money. I don’t suppose you have a pattern you used or directions on how to make one like this. I’m new to quilting so it would take me forever to put together but I would sill love to make one.
