I found that the official Seychelles flag is 2 times wider than it is long . . . so I drew this out on graph paper - then . . . transferred that to 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" paper squares . . . and so a pattern was made.
My friend, Kim, has an embroidery machine - and was so generous to make this quilt complete by embroidering the word "Seychelles" in the colours of the flag.
What an absolutely unique gift that Sara will give her husband - this was really a "custom quilt" all around!
There you go - you learn something new every day!
