It is getting close - at least on finished quilt tops. There are UFO projects in there also. Today I am sharing with you this flag quilt. The pattern was in the Quilt Sampler spring/summer 2007 issue. The pattern is called "Raise the Flag" and was a pattern presented by Good Wives Co. in Marion, Ohio. I did the smaller version that pattern tester, Laura Boehnke did. I definitely need to get this finished soon as it is a good time to display patriotic quilts.
The angels are from a pattern I think was Brannock & Patek. I made this a long time ago. I like it very much so I don't know why I haven't taken time to quilt it.
The house quilt top is a lot newer than the last one. Probably made 1 1/2 years ago. I do like house quilts!
The last top today is "Last Rung on the Ladder" by Lynda Hall. I should have made more blocks but it will be a good size to hang on my quilt ladder.
I photographed a finished quilt but I am going to have to display it differently to get a good picture. The reason I wanted to show it to you is that I was looking for it in quilt top form. I do not remember hand quilting it but I did. I don't have a label on the quilt, so I don't know when I did it. I have been thinking that it was unfinished. I was going to have it professionally machine quilted as it is such a big quilt. How can I forget that I actually hand quilted it? I took it out in the yard and spread it out for a picture but it is too shady. Guess it will have to be spread on a bed and a photo taken that way. Just thought you would get a chuckle that I couldn't remember it being finished. It was in a large basket displayed in my living room but with other quilts on top.
Come back for more, if you are enjoying my quilt tops. An old friend told me once that it was okay to have a quilt top collection because they take up less room than finished quilts. Guess I decided that was a good idea.
