"Bargello Flag Quilt Pattern" from Helen Hensley

I tried to purchase this pattern online and then they ran out and the owner e-mailed all of her customers and asked if anybody had it and gave them my e-mail address to contact me if they wanted to sell it to me. Well, lo and behold, I received a note from a lady quilter in Michigain. She had the pattern and said I could have it. At no cost to me. We have become good friends across the mile on the internet. I made the quilt and sent it to her for a thank you for the pattern. I am in the process of making one for myself. Here is a picture of it.

I have been quilting for about 20 years now but just the past 4 years I have really gotten into it. I too enjoy Quilters Club of America and am a Charter member.

Helen,

That is a lovely quilt.  I love anything to do with Our Grand Old Flag.  You did a great job.  It looks like it is a big quilt, also.  Not a wall hanging.

Thanks for sharing.

Your quilt is beauitful. I was looking for a Flag quilt pattern for a friend who lost her husband in February.  So I just took the picture of her family and put it in the center of the stars and make one star for each year their were married.

I'm so glad you found your pattern!!!  You did a great job with the bargello!!  I'm a little intimidated by the bargello's.  I love the Ragedy Anns in your picture too.

Thanks for sharing.

What  a great way to make a flag quilt.  It looks like it is actually waving.  Great job
