    Tumbler Flag

    I've always admired Bellaboo's tumbler flag avatar. So when I got my GO about a month ago, i cut one out for myself. A month later, finally got it quilted . I didn't care so much for the quilting in the blue and red with just my presser foot. So I put the walking foot on and lowered the presser foot tension for the white stripes. And I'm still not happy with the quilting [sigh]. But done is better than perfect, right? LOL

    I like it.....the quilting flows like a flag in the breeze. I love the non-square outline of the flag, and the variability of the fabrics. You did a great job....Jane

    That's wonderful. The quilting looks excellent...don't be so hard on yourself. It's done, and done well. Congratulations on a good finish.
