Flags on Sticks...

Today is the first day of the Flags on Sticks hop....AND I am excited to say that it is also my day.      




I want to thank Thearica Burroughs and Madame Samm for coming up with this great idea for a hop and for all their hard work getting it all together.

I always wanted a flag for outside, you know, one of those cute little inexpensive ones you put in your flower bed.  You can get so many different designs.   My husband, bless him, says that no one will see it for we live too far from the road.  Well, this was a great excuse for me to get small flag poll and I put it in front of my house next to the porch.  (Anyway, I will as soon as I get a flag)

For the flag I made,  I decided to make something for inside the house.  That way I didn't have to worry about the weather.  I also decided to so something for Easter.

Out came my pencil and paper....I came up with this:



I drew my pattern then transferred it to Steam a Seam.  I always have fun hunting for the fabrics in my scrap bins to find the fabric I want to use for each little piece in my applique.  (I also added the letters, flowers, and more smoke coming off the tires.) 

After I pressed and appliqued my pieces on, quilted in a grid pattern and added the binding.  (before any embellishments)


So, here it is finished:



 I seen a real cute holder for inside that I want but did not get back to the store to get it as of yet.  It is on my list, LOL.

OK, you seen mine... lets all go and see the rest: 
(Don't forget to bring your Pom Poms along and give a big cheer)  



  The rest of the schedule, goes like this.....




Thank you all so much for stopping by....

HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE!!!
