  1. I don't have the pattern Liz, but in looking at it, I think you could come up with the pattern using half-square triangles, flying geese, square, and a triangle in a square.  Most pieced patterns are made up of common shapes.  These are probably 4 inch blocks.   I often make my own patterns when I see a quilt I like and can't locate the pattern for it.   I see two separate blocks that form the quilt.

      very true Jean!  I might wait to see if they sell off the kit on Black Friday.  I would love this quilt!

      Thanks very much :)

  2. Nancy, did you use a Sizzix or Accuquilt die to cut the curved pieces for your flag?  I just purchased the larger (had the smaller) one and you've given me a good reason to use it.

      I have the Sizzix and used the Wave die.  It is about 4.5x 5 inches, I think.  I think they are fun and I sure wouldn't cut those shapes by hand!

      I have a Sizzix too.  I love that machine!

  3. Suzanne, I might suggest a serif font for readability. A Times Roman is a bit more open and easier on aging eyes.
