let’s fly the flag!

by Nova on August 3, 2013

When Shannon sent me her latest pattern for a proof read, I knew I wanted to make it & thought you probably might  too so suggested a little quilt along.

flag2-auntycookieMaking a quilt is fun but Quilting-a-Long is funner & we can share ideas & inspiration along the way.  So…what do you say? Are you up for Flying the Flag & Quilting-a-Long with us? I mean come on, who doesn’t love a bit of a bunting right?!

This pattern is perfect for beginners & for those with more experience it’s a blank canvas just waiting to be personalised

There’ll be a prize at the end too for a very luck QAL-er. (Prize yet to announced but knowing Shannon it will be very fabulous indeedy)

flag-auntycookieIt will be a very relaxed affair we  promise. & to prove it  here’s our very relaxed schedule. (if you want to skip ahead a long the way please do, but for the rest of us the option is there to take it slow)
