Great, OK let’s get started.
All seams = 1/4″
The sizes in this pattern are designed to make a 6: x 8″ sized flag for bunting.
STEP 1: PREPARATION
a) Download and print HSL.PeaceFlagpattern.Template. Check the size of your print is 100% with the 1″ size check.
b) Trace the red hexie outline on a piece of tracing paper and save for step 3 (a).
c) Cut the following pieces: (use the template as reference for fabric choices)
AC & DF: 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ (cut 2)
B & E: 1″ x 4 1/4″ (cut 2)
G: 1″ x 4 1/4″ (cut 1)
H: 1″ x 3 3/4″ (cut 6)
J: 2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ (cut 2)
K: 2 1/4″ x 5″ (cut 2)
L: 2 1/2″ x 7″ (cut 2)
STEP 2: THE CHICKEN’s FOOT!
a) Cut pieces AC and DF at a 45ø angle at the bottom, as shown.
b) Stitch B to A, with right sides together. Press seam towards B. Stitch E to D with right sides together. Press seam towards E.
c) Line up C with the top tip of B as shown. Stitch C to B with right sides together. Press seam towards B. Line up F with the top tip of E. Stitch F to E with right sides together. Press seam towards E.
d) Trim the edges as shown.
e) Stitch ABC to G with right sides together. Press seam towards G. StitchDEF to G with right sides together. Press seam towards G.
STEP 3: MAKE THE HEXIE
a) Place the traced hexie shape on top your block, and cut along the lines.
b) Place the first H piece centred along the bottom of your hexie with right sides together. Stitch.
Then place the neck H piece on the next edge of the hexie and stitch. Work you way around until you’ve done all side sides. Press the seams towards the H pieces.
STEP 4: THE EXTERIOR
a) Stitch J pieces to H2 and H6, with right sides together.
b) Stitch K pieces to H3 and H5, with right sides together.
c) Stitch L pieces centred along top and bottom of the block.
d) If you would like to add running stitch around the border then do so before trimming. If you are making this for a “to Boston with Love” flag then trim to 6 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ for bunting flag. Then go to the tutorial on how to make the flag on the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild website to make the flag.
