Blue Flags

I am sharing a photo of my Blue Flags block for the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt sew-along.  I like the little blue check fabric I used.    I think the next block will have the alternating block fabric for the background.


If you have time, pay a visit to the main blog page for the sew-along.  Quite a variety of fabrics and styles being used by the participants.  Click on here.

  21. I am still deciding on background fabric. But better late than never. I used a little red check in a leaf for my trailing vines this week and those checks add so much interest don't they. The dark background really changes the look of the block.

  23. I also love the check fabric and the other blue you have used positively glows. Unfortunately I have found it hard to find check fabrics.
