Flags on a Stick Blog Hop


I'm hopping today with the Flags on a Stick blog hop.

The hop is being hosted by Thearica and Mdm Samm.
Today's Hoppers are:

Quilted Delights - Me  :)
K and S Sweets and Stitching


And now without further ado... I present to you my my flag.

I was definitely thinking spring for my project.
My favorite flowers are tulips and since I have been in a paper piecing mood lately, I went in search of the perfect tulip paper piecing pattern.
I found just the one I needed here and moderated the pattern a bit to create my little spring flag.

It's a little stiffer than most quilts with all the quilting I put in it, 
but it still blows in the wind in the front yard. 



Again here are the hoppers for today.  Make sure you check them out.




The entire schedule can be found at Thearica's blog.

  8. I like tulips, too! Your flag is wonderful. The quilting is amazing. I can only imagine the thrill of the neighbors when they see the beautiful tulip flag waving in the breeze! They just have to know spring is truly here, no matter the weather that day. Of course, I had to take a peek at some of your other projects. The children's clothing turned out perfect for the play. Wow! All those clothes by one person. I'm impressed. I'm in love with Pythogras' lute. I was a math major as was my brother. His wife struggled and struggled with math, so I don't know how much she'd appreciate that in her home - no, she supports him in his endeavors - his hobby is woodworking. She actually found a book that I bought for him for Christmas. Thanks for participating and bringing spring to us.

  45. I'm so fond of tulips and love your red ones. The fabric you used in the pots is perfect. I think a stiffer flag will show off better than one that is too loose and gets wrapped around the pole.
