Nautical Flags at Harbour Town Pier, by Beverly Hicks Burch

under the lighthouse

I love nautical flags. For years I have sworn I would make a quilt using the designs from nautical flags. They’re so bright and cheerful and happy. I think it’s the primary colors that give them away…

As a matter of fact, if you are a quilter as well as a traveler and photographer, here is a website of the Alphabet in Nautical Flags. Most quilters will be able to pretty easily convert the flags into quilt blocks. I would recommend the rotary cutting method and maybe use EQ7 to design them.

These flags lined the pier beneath or in front of the Harbour Town Lighthouse on Hilton Head Island. It was a glorious sunny day and wonderful colors abound…

A dream for a photographer and textile artist…
