|Thanks, Melanie, for holding my flag!|
The hundreds of flags collected from quilters all over the world will be displayed in the Shapiro Family Courtyard of the Boston Museum of Fine Art for several weeks, beginning Memorial Day weekend.
Thank goodness for scraps and bonus HSTs, because I created this little flag in about 15 minutes. (I hope you can't tell!) The HSTs are left over from all the flying geese in the Fat Quarter Shop BOM quilt and a scrap of text from the Weekender Bag. Easy peasy - no cutting, just sewing the bits together, backing it and turning it right side out. I used a scrap of blue navy dot 1/2 inch bias tape for the tie at the top, which was probably purchased in about 1985, which had a price tag of 94 cents. (I knew I'd find a use for it someday.)
I hope somehow that seeing all those flags displayed will bring a bit of comfort to those affected by this event.
