Prayer flags are like small textile collages that bring support, comfort and encouragement to someone who really needs it. It's a tangible way we can walk along side someone whose life is a bit challenging at the moment. Carpe Diem (seize the day) is the theme of this set of five prayer flags. My niece Kora took inspiration and strength from these words during her cancer surgery and recovery. When she was ready, Kora passed the flags on to her mom to give her courage in her last days. Now they are supporting a young mom with tiny newborn twins. Begin your legacy of encouragement by creating your own set ... Carpe Diem! SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 5 prayer flags - 5" x 7" each

Recommended with this pattern

  • 5 pieces of medium weight fusible stabilizer 5" x 7"

The Quilted Canvas by Barb Westfall
I am Barb Westfall, a quilt artist from Canada. Much of my art is inspired by the wide open landscape all around me and by great works of art hanging in galleries around the world. I love to experiment with fibers, fabrics, and techniques and try to challenge myself to do something new in each piece I create. The possibilities are endless and inspiration is everywhere! I display many of my pieces mounted on stretcher frames, a simple process I explain in my collection of patterns from The Quilted Canvas. You'll always find something a little different in my patterns but I believe creativity should be fun so I keep the projects simple and flexible ... designed to bring out the quilt artist in YOU, too!
