After three months of quilting, my wife Marie just finished this quilt of the American flag. We’re going to use it as a wall hanging inside, a flag for special days outside. Marie took two flags, put batting in between, and then quilted a pattern down the 13 stripes and then quilted around the 50 stars. She had to align the two sides perfectly, so she spent a lot of time pinning the two sides together before she could quilt even a small section.
My camera angle makes the flag look much larger than it is. It’s a normal-sized flag, 32” by 56”, a typical size for hanging outside one’s house. Marie is actually eight inches taller than the flag.
Same flag with side lighting to emphasize the quilting.
