A decade in the making

Flag quilt, 56 x 77
I first blogged about this quilt four years ago when it was a six-year-old UFO! My flag quilt was quilted by Maggi Honeyman in a Baptist fan pattern on her longarm. I don't remember how the original was quilted, but this old quilting pattern seemed appropriate, like wind blowing the flags around.
Yes, those cornerstones are half-inch squares.
The binding was completed some time ago, but I kept forgetting to get a picture. After the binding is on, I consider the quilt done, but lately I've been feeling a bit guilty about not putting labels on my quilts. It's taken 10 years to get this far, what's a little more time to add the label? Does anyone have a good method for making labels?

Well done on the quilt. sometimes I sign my name in machine stitching in a border, some times I stitch one with one of the alphabets on my bernina and sometimes I write with a perm marker on a label panel really no rhyme or reason to which I use.

A great finish on a UFO. I like the way the flags are set in each block. I like patriotic quilts!
