I made a flag-inspired quilt for my mother this Christmas.
STARS: I used a darting minnows pattern in white and blues. The minnows were paper pieced to get the points of the stars to line up perfectly. All of the minnows used a medium blue, while the non-minnow squares of blue alternated between a lighter and a darker shade of blue.
STRIPES: The red and white "stripe" fabric is from Ikea. I originally planned to use it for the back of the quilt, but the top ended up being too small for a good lap size quilt. So I cut it up and used it as a border instead.
Here are the pictures:
It's super flaggy, and not likely to really blend in with any home decor, but I think it's fun.
Thanks for stopping by! I have yet another Christmas present quilt post coming up soon...
