    I am making a blue jean quilt and don't know what to do with the blue jean flag. I started with red and white 9 patches and want to fit this flag in somewhere.

    I would try to put it right in the middle of the quilt.

    I would put it either in the very center of the quilt or at the top center. Depends on how big the quilt is going to be.

    Since the flag shape is rectangular, I would put it on the back and turn it into the label. Or, put it dead center and add vertical red, white and blue stripes on both sides to get to the right row size.

    I like the idea of putting in the center on the front. Show off that great flag.

    I think you should put it in the middle and square it up to fit. Add what you need to each side to make it work.

    I would put it in the middle and frame it with your other blocks.

    That's what I was going to suggest. If you do put it on the back, I would add a separate signature patch.

    My suggestion would be to put it in the center and do sashing strips around it to frame it and bring it to the right size. It's a beautiful quilt. can't wait to see it finished.
