No Foolin' - My Flag is Waving!!


I am so pleased to be part of this hop and ... 
to have been one of the lucky recipients of a flag pole from  Flag-Outlet.com 
The Flip Flop mini flag holder I received is adorable and most fitting for helping get the mind out of the winter blues and onto the track of thinking that summer will soon be here ... 

Did you also know that Flags on A Stick has partnered with Sew We Quilt to offer all those entering the blog hop an exclusive chance to win your wish list???

When this hop was announced, asking us to make a flag reflecting something we wished to represent ... this is the picture that came to mind ...


Since I have two youngsters still at home, I often take note of these signs.

Well ... with that in mind, I thought of a sign to warn my children, or whoever else may wander by, that I, a quilter, was at play and they should be cautious!!
{chuckle}

So, I started by drawing this pattern:



And this is where I ended:




You may recognize the lady from Amy Bradley's Have a Happy Scrappy Day pattern ... yep ... you would be correct.  All the drawings I attempted, kept looking like Amy's, just not nearly as fun looking.  I just knew this was the form I wanted to use and it captures ... to me ... the utter joy of playing with the endless possibilities of quilting. With Amy's permission, I was able to use a portion of her silhouette for my flag ... thank you Amy!!  


I believe I will be making another as this one has been requested as a gift.  I'm pondering making dear lady quilter darker, or perhaps outline her in straight black ??? ...
oh the joys of the possibilities when a Quilter is At Play!

Please visit my fellow bloggers today who are also sharing their flags today:
