“Gin Flag” Quilt

I saw this quilt on SOTAK‘s blog and was instantly smitten.  The pattern can be purchased here.  The quilt name is a nod to the designer, I’m a Ginger Monkey’s love of gin. My husband found that in the Royal Canadian Navy, a “Gin flag” was meant as an invitation to other ships crews to join the ship flying the flag to come aboard when in dock for “gin”.  My quilt is 76″ x 96″.
