Flags on a Stick

I have been so impressed with all of the wonderful flags so far. (Thank you Mdm Samm and Thearica for hosting this wonderful hop) All of the flags are so unique and fun! I would love to wave any on them at my home! I thought about what type of flag I would like to make. It was difficult to come up with what to do. But one morning, I'm talking two o'clock in the morning I came up with an idea! I will make a Halloween flag because I love Halloween. I know it's certainly not the right time of year, but oh well, when an idea hits you in the middle of the night, I have to run with it. So here is my flag on a stick.

I decided to use my witch paper piecing pattern for the main design.
This pattern can be found
free on my website and also on Craftsy.

I added some borders and rick rack. Prairie Points finish off the bottom edge.
I worked on this project while on a mini quilt retreat at mom's house. I'm holding
my finished flag on a dowel. It'll look really cute hanging on the flag stand at home.

The finished measurements are 12" x 18", perfect for
my garden flag holder at home.
I would not have thought to make a garden flag before. I am looking forward to putting this out for Halloween next year. After making this flag, it would be fun to make several for throughout the year. I was please with how quickly this project went together. Seeing everyone's projects has inspired me! Have fun hopping around.


I get to share today with all of these talented quilters;

  27. Oh your witch is so cute. I love your ric rack. It is sure going to complement your place (where ever you place it) this fall.

  28. Your witch is a real charmer. Not sure I want to run into her, even if she is smiling [gg]. Who cares what time of year it is when the inspiration strikes. This way you are ready for October. I do like how you used the rickrack to accent the flag.

    ReplyDelete
  29. How cute! Your witch is fabulous, and I love the rickrack and prairie points accents. Whenever inspiration comes we have to roll with it, even if we're stitching witches in the spring or snowmen in the summer.

  37. Cindy, what a super cute quilt! I spent so much time trying to figure out what to make too! Then I thought, what do I already have, what do I know? Sometimes we sure do make it harder than it really is, don't we? You are going to get a lot of enjoyment out of it :)

  46. I've never been one to decorate for Halloween much. I also decorated some when my children were at home. Now you have me thinking in a new direction with the garden flag. I love this flag. You'll be ready for Halloween this year. You are an inspiration. Thanks for sharing.
