These flags, or pennants, are created from quilt tops made by anonymous women during the middle of the last century. Pennants are flags. They are emblems of victory, carried into and out of battle. They are symbols of importance, flown when the high ranking commodore is aboard a naval ship. And they are ledges of honor. These particular pennants are made in celebration and honor of the creative and hard-working women. They are makers unknown. We can probably agree that these colorful, unselfconscious constructions were created by women with families. They did not come from great economic means. The fabric pieces are worn, cut from recycled curtains, dresses, men’s work shirts, children’s clothes outgrown. Some pieced quilt tops have a distinct elegant arrangement. Others are made with whatever was usable, showing crude techniques. But they all show labor.
