Happy Pride Month!
In celebration of Pride month we have a free pattern to create your very own quilted Pride flag.
Flag & pattern instructions by Lane Hunter. Follow Lane on Instagram. We’d love to see your quilted Pride flags! Tag us on Instagram using @moderndomestic and #MDquiltedpride.
Did you know?
Early in the Gay Rights movement, organizers used the Pink Triangle, a symbol used by the Nazi’s to designate homosexuals in the prison camps. In 1978, Gilbert Baker designed a more uplifting symbol by assigning values to each of the colors of the rainbow. In 2018, Daniel Quasar redesigned the flag to include CIvil RIghts (Black and Brown) and Trans Rights (Light Blue, Pink, and white). Make this quilted version for yourself or to support the LGBTQ+ people in your community.
See our Pride flag and BLM flag in the front window of our NE Alberta St location.
