    Proud of My Airman!

    I finished this yesterday-just in the nick of time. My son has been in Kuwait for 6 months and is coming home today. He is single, and I felt guilty that all my projects have been going to my married children. So...when I saw Jenny's flag, I had to do it for him! I'm sure he won't know what to do with it, but...

    I was happy with the way this one turned out. Jenny's instructions were so clear, and this was simple to do. I had to piece the back because of the quilt shape. It was wider than it was long, and I wanted the Air Force fabric to be right side up.

    I got the little mini tumbler template and am going to make little flags with my leftovers.

    Question: Do you have to resize all your photos before uploading? I haven't found the restrictions yet, but I know most of my photos won't upload until I resize. Just curious!
    I'm creative. You can't expect me to be neat too. :icon_woot:

                          That turned out beautiful!

                          I usually resize mine to about 300 x 400 or so.
