It's time for my monthly Flags update.
For the month of December 2014 we were to cut out 5 of these sets for the Star and Moon setting blocks.
I finally decided on this fabric yesterday and I already had my templates made.
They will look similar to this photo from the book.
I appliquéd The Crescents of South Carolina flag.
The Fort Moultrie ( Liberty Moon ) flag was also appliquéd.
Here is a photo of how I started out on the quilt. I pinned "chunks" of fabric pieces and the freezer paper templates up on my design wall to help get a cohesive look with the different fabrics.
I do this a lot with most of my quilts.
I don't want any "surprise…it doesn't look good" episodes, having sewed it together
before I audition various fabrics.
Just a photo reminder to show you what I am shooting for in this FOLLOW/SEW ALONG

I will be linking up with the others to show our progress.
