Daniel's Flag Quilt Top

Today I am linking up with Finished For Friday , Lush Friday, and Sew-n-tell


Whew, another top ready for the LA. I have a plan for quilting several tops next week - in between watching the beautiful baby Matthew, that is. I want to quilt this fairly closely, it has to stand up to the wear and tear of a five year old boy - this quilt is for a great nephew in Boston. It's larger than it looks in the photo, 80"x 92" and should be perfect for his twin bed and I have a few bits of fabric left so I might even make a pillow case or two.

I really like that flag quilt....it is a quilt that can grown up with that little boy, which makes it extra nice. Childish prints are cute, but they grow out of the childish stage quickly and don't want those quilts any longer....not so with THIS quilt! Good idea and great job!

Hi Roslyn,you are very welcome to lush friday,thanks for linking up. WOW your quilts are fantastic. I am a novice quilter. There are no classes here to learn quilting so am trying to figure it out as I go. Made an attempt at free motion work but have to get the gloves,then may find it easier. I AM IN AWE OF YOUR WORK.
