Mini Flag Quilt!


I wanted to make something quick and fun again, so I used a pattern from the summer issue of Primitive  Quilts and Projects. The original is framed and I wanted to make a framed piece, but I didn't have the right sized frame. I have lots of old frames but of course not the one I need and I don't want to buy more, so I quilted it.

I added a little extra stitching around the outside and a border so mine measures, 9" x9". I also used fabric instead of wool. It is a great piece to put in those areas that need a little something, but too small for a regular wall quilt.

You whipped it up just in time for the 4th too! It's a nice prim piece and sure like how you aged it.

I read on a blog a while back about someone taking wood frames from a thrift store and taking them apart. Cut the pieces to size and reassembled. I have trouble finding square frames and have given the idea some thought. Would have to have DH do it for me. I am not sure he has what he needs to do it.

Your flag piece is a nice fill-in the space piece.
