WIP Wednesday ~ Flag Block

I showed you the little flag block I made the other day. It is the center for a small calendar quilt from the Temecula Quilt Company.

Of course, I can never leave a pattern alone and I wanted to set my flag horizontally, but the proper way to display a flag is with the blue field in the upper left hand corner. Always. So I am back to their layout, almost.

I thought I would add these wide borders. But I ripped them off.

It was okay, It just didn’t have the naïve look of a doll quilt.

That’s better! I’ll be using those border strips for binding.

Have a great day!

    Good choice to remove the big border – it does look better. And the flag is terrific!
