    I saw my favorite LQS was holding a class last Monday to make this project and I thought it would be a good warm up for the large bargello I plan to start soon. It was a fun, quick and easy project.

    The instructor recommended getting a gold tassel for it if it was to be a wall hanging. I think I'll use it for a table runner, but it's a great idea.

    What a good job you did. The red fabric is very vibrant is it a batik or hand dyed? I would like to make one for the hubby.

    You know, I decided at the last minute to go and yanked the red out of my very small stash and then purchased the white and blue at the store. The red is just a bright red with som blackish squigles. The others in the class had completely different fabric and all of them came out really nice.

    It was very, very easy. I would not cut the length of the strips until I was done. I didn't want to make the 1" strips so I cut them 2" and the extra length I had left on allowed me to do that.

    Also, I did not use binding, as you can see.

    What a cute flag quilt! That is just adorable! I could actually see using that somehow to make Quilts of Valor quilts - put that in the center, or in the corner - or anywhere... Just fantastic!
