    Tumbler Flag

    I loved Jenny's Tumbler flag wall hanging, but wanted to make an accurate American Flag. So I did a little math, cut a few hundred trapezoids and made a twin sized quilt. It was too big to go to the Quilts of Valor so I gifted it directly to a dear friend who is a disabled Vietnam vet. He was very touched.Flagquilt1.JPGflag bobby.JPG

    The final size is 67 x 98" and was quilted in variegated red/white/blue thread in a star pattern by my quilter, Marilynn Bouclin.

                              All I can think to say that it is beautiful! I wish I could think a better expression. Your changing of it is breathtaking!
