  1. Very nice to share. Thanks. Isn’t the blue field on the wrong side of Amy’s quilt?

    1. Not at all, when the Flag is hanging in this direction, the star field is positioned on the top left.

  2. It looks like it is on the wrong side to me too. Look at the quilt in the background behind Kimberly in the video above. If that quilt was turned up horizontally, the blue field would be in the top left.
