Signal flags — finished!

signalflag1

I finished my signal flag quilt! I am very excited to have this quilt finished for my guild’s exhibit–a first for me. The exhibit opens November 4. I still need to add a sleeve, but thanks to Vanessa I know how. We are so lucky to have Vanessa Vargas Wilson as the leader of our guild. Vanessa (aka Crafty Gemini) is a total dynamo and a wonderful teacher. In fact, before I ever met Vanessa I used her tutorial about hands stitching binding. I was having trouble with my corners–they were lumpy and crooked–not pretty! Vanessa’s video tutorial walks you through the process so clearly and you get a sense of her sparkling personality. Here you can see my tidy binding–thanks Vanessa!

This quilt measures 41 x 52 inches. I used all Kona solids for the front and an organic print of the back. I added a small tag in the binding–it’s a really small way to identify the quilt as mine.

      Thanks, Vicki! I mark the top with a long metal ruler, making lines from edge to edge spaced the width of the ruler. In this case, I used the diagonal lines in the blocks to mark some of the lines. I really like straight line quilting on the diagonal because it gives a really smooth finish–no puckers!
