    Twister - American Flag (2 of 'em)

    This is a pattern I designed myself. It's going to be a shop sample for the quilt shop where I work. I used the 5" charm squares to make the first flag, which is 18" x 18". I then used the scraps (2.5" squares) from cutting it and the Itsy Bitsy Twister tool to make the little baby flag, which is 7" x 7". It was tough dealing with all of those seams, but came out so gosh darn adorable that I know I'll be making more.

    I did the quilting myself. I did the "big" one on my Tin Lizzie, and the little one on my Bernina. Stars for the blue and a wavy line for the red and white.

    I kept the fabrics in the same spot in each flag, so it's kind of cool to compare how they look in the bigger and smaller flags.

    Very cute. I may need to do something like that for my patriotic quilt -- I have a lot of random patriotic fabric pieces left over from other projects.

    No, I didn't make it. It's by Primitive Gatherings. There are 4 total sizes from the Twister, 2 by CS and 2 by Primitive Gatherings. This one I think is called "Itsy Bitsy Pinwheel Tool" or something like that

    Of course! QOV is such a great organization/idea. Please borrow away!

    You did an awesome job with your design and colors. You should write a pattern for sale.
