Watch Melinda Bula as she takes us behind the scenes to create an amazing flag quilt for her son who joined the Marines after college. This quilt was recently added to the permanent collection of the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY.
Melinda says, “It’s a painting without any paint, where every color change is another piece of fabric. After the raw-edge fusible appliqué was completed, I used thread painting to blend the colors.”
