February OMG Goal

This is a photo that my nephew gave me.  He has asked me to create a quilt based on this photo of Flag Rock which is near Plymouth MA.  The rock was painted with a swastika circa WWII.  Local residents painted an American Flag on top.  To this day when the paint wears off it is repainted.  My nephew has asked me to create a quilt based on this photo.  My February goal is to create the rock portion and applique it to a background.  My plan is to use Storm-at-Sea on point as the background behind the rock.  I hope he likes the result.  I have got the rock underway and I am scanning blue fabric into my computer because I want to grey scale it to help me select appropriate values of fabric to emulate horizontal motion across the quilt. He has asked me to have this quilt done by Easter.  I have given many quilts as gifts, but I feel like this is my first commissioned work.  It is easier when it is a gift.  Come join the fun at Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal!


  1. Good luck with your quilt. It sounds like it will be very cool when you finish. I like the story of Flag Rock

  2. I can't wait to see this quilt top! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

  3. OH MY what a heart-warming story - I can't wait to see how this one progresses, and how you translate the picture into a quilt! I was poking around the linked projects @ the linky party and yours caught my eye so I came over for a peek - I'm glad I did!
