Drum roll please! I have a couple of WIPs--works in progress--
Our son, last fall, said to me, "mom, why haven't you made
me a quilt?" Well, I have made him quilts--but not lately.
He said, " I've seen all the quilts you make for charity and
for my sisters--"
I said, "I didn't know you wanted a quilt. What design do you want?"
His answer: A TEXAS FLAG!
Okay, easy to do--just takes many reds, blues and whites is all--
I was going to Wing the pattern, but got bogged down in the
measures etc--So, instead opted to purchase a ready printed
pattern from Aspen Tree--Am so glad I did!!
She has the applique for the stars--that would have been
a devil to figure out--there comes a time when it makes
sense to purchase a pattern--even if the design looks simple!
But, it took me six months to gather the fabrics I needed and
to actually cut and sew this flag! Off to the quilters it goes.
The other day, I told him I'd finished his quilt and started
to pull it out, but his reply was "no, I want to see it
when it's completely finished!"
This is one I enjoyed sewing! Great pride in our country
and this quilt will be on display for several months
as we venture through our patriotic holidays--
I had the reds, whites and blues from the
Texas flag quilt
