American Flag Wall Hanging in Thimbleberries

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


I've begun working on unfinished projects in my closet, and first up during this round of finishing UFOs is a small American Flag wall hanging in Thimbleberries. 
The quilt top was already completed and only needed quilted and bound.  Major projects like this take years, you know!
 The stars are 3" from tip to tip.

 The flag stripes are 1/2" wide.  I used a wave stitch to create a flying flag.
 She'll make a cute table topper or wall hanging.
The backing has stars, too, and includes a rod pocket for easy hanging.
Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  How would I know after all this time?
  • Fabric:  Thimbleberries
  • Size:  16-1/2" x 19-1/4"
  • Quilting:  Meander, waves, and straight line in cream and navy thread on Mrs.Bernina, my old 830 which was my grandmother's.
  • Batting:  Fusible cotton
  • Binding:  Unknown from Moda, deep red with gold streaks.
  • Value:  God Bless the USA!
This quilt is for sale in my Etsy shop, Busy Hands Quilts!

That's really a neat quilt. Tiny slivers of fabric scare me. Nice quilting too.

Looks great! I have that book and you've inspired me to make it. I hope I hurry and do it before I forget. Or else I could start and finish later. I have those projects which take years also.;0)
