Isn't this a fun little flag quilt! This quilt belongs to Lisa and her piecing was beautiful.
I wanted the quilting to take on the elements of a flag. Stars in the corner and horizontal red and white stripes.
For the stars, I did all straight lines using a ruler as my guide.
For the red and white, I made all my quilting horizontal. Some feathers going from left to right and also stitch in the ditch and straight lines with the ruler.
I used double batting. Warm and white on the bottom and Hobbs on top. Why did I mix the two? When using the Hobbs on top, it gives it a little bit more puff...plus it's all I had for scrap batting that fit the size of this quilt. I save all my scrap batting in hopes to use it for runners and baby quilts. Bonus for the customer...I don't charge them for it.
This quilt, quilted up fast and fun!
