    I made a new garden flag to hang at the gate to our farm.

    I really like how the light shines through and lights up the centre. There are 2 blocks, one on each side that I did in solid colours and then I framed it with black. Janie

    Love it. Is it made with fabric or the flag nylon? Have made flags in the past but never with fabric to hang outside. If fabric, did you pretreat to prevent fading? Thanks..

    Wonderful idea. I think I'd like to do this. Is it cotton fabric with no batting?

    Is there batting? I have thought about making, but thought I needed some kind of a nylon fabric. What fabric did you use? Size of flag? I love it and would like to make them for the seasons and holidays, birthdays etc. Could even personalize for birthdays and anniversary. So cute!!

    I made it from regular fabric, with cotton batting and I just quilted a few lines around the largest block on the black areas. I know it will fade and not last long, but I'll try to bring it in out of the rain, and it's a bit shaded by the gate, so it will last the season anyway. Then, I'll just have to make another one! :) It's 12 x 18 inches with 2 tabs to hang it from at the top.

    I am making notes in my to do book. I love all that could be done. I have purchased one flag with a quilt block, but it was expensive. I rather make and have changes. These would be fun gifts, also. Thanks for the info and size.... Thank YOU!!

    Very nice! Maybe I could try that as hubby is vehemently opposed to a barn quilt.
