    American Wave wall quilt

    From a Connecting Threads kit, made for my middle daughter who was born on flag day (June 14).

    I'd love to have one just like this for our front door and there's enough fabric left to make another one, but I'll have to psych myself up to do it. Piecing both a convex and a concave curve within the space of 3 inches, 72 times, was not fun.

    Well, the effort was beautiful Amazing that you have enough fabric to do 2 flags. Your piecing is great. Any tips?

    You did a wonderful job. It was worth all the trouble.

    Thank you all! Debby, if you use the pattern's cutting layout there wouldn't be enough for two. But I went a different route, just to save myself some cutting (hand trouble). Having fabric left over was just a bonus. Compare:

    As for piecing tips, I found I needed more than two clips on the concave curve, and it was easier for me to join the pieces in two steps, stitching from each edge to the center.

    I saw that fabric on Connecting Threads Web Site. I really like the way they all play together so well. Your flag is beautiful. Thanks for your drawing and description of how you saved fabric.
    Blessings!
