Last year I saw this quilt on Amy's Blog. She was inspired by several Union Jack quilts but used the pattern called Victory Garden. Amy has made several projects with flags that I have just loved. So I set a goal for myself to make a personal flag quilt during the year of 2011. I decided to use the 4 flags from my mixed breed nationality: 1/2 Slovakian, 1/4 English and 1/4 Danish = all USA.
I made 2 Union Jacks so far, both with the same fabric. And I used fabric from Japan. I thought that was funny.
And this weekend I made 2 Danish Flags. Mostly because it was the easiest flag!
This is the 2nd Danish flag. I think I'm going to stick to the red white and blue colors for the whole quilt since all 4 flags use only those colors. Of course with prints there will be small touches of green and yellow but mainly it is red, white and blue. Next I will conquer the Slovakian flag. I'm looking forward to it.
