If you’re quilting along with us it’s time to get those flag fabrics at the ready!
I’ve been pulling fabrics from the stash.
Going gender neutral for a baby quilt.
& scrappy of course. I know, what a shock, I hope you were sitting down for that one.
Narrowed it down a bit, though sitting here looking at the picture I think I’ll maybe throw some of the red back in & use some red for the binding too.
The pattern calls for specific sizes & special folding for cutting out the correct amount of flags which is fab & a great guide but like any favourite recipe there’s always room to tweak so if scraps are what you have to hand then go the scraps. Some of my pieces are big enough for a flag or 2 & I’ll get more out of some of the larger bits.
I found a nice piece of chambray to hang the flags on & a giant graph paper-esque woven cotton sheet from the op shop for the back.
That’s me ready set go I’d say. Back next week with some flaggy inspiration.
Got your fabrics yet? Hop over to the flickr group for show & tell …..
