My cousin asked me to make a Jamaican themed quilt for her boyfriend a while ago. She gave me a few suggestions one of which was the flag. After a long search, I could not find a Jamaican flag pattern. So this one sat in my really need to do some geometry to figure this thing out pile.
I first had to purchase some solids to make this work. The flag is black, yellow, and green. I was thinking cream for the sashing, and that cute stripe for the binding. She also wanted a boxing glove theme for the backing. I couldn't find any fabric with gloves, so I might have to do some paper piecing for the back. Hopefully there is a pattern out there somewhere!
So far here are the flags! They will finish at 10 inches by 13 inches. Now I know the final block size, I can get busy setting up the rest of the design. If anyone is interested, I can share how I made the flags :)
So long for now,
