Great e-book! Review by Debra

When I saw the mini-flags in the issue of Quilting Arts Magazine, I wanted to see more. This e-book shows all the mini-flags sent to QA.
I especially enjoyed reading the prayers for each of the flags and see that how no matter where you live, life's struggles and our prayers are the same everywhere.

Size Counts Review by Dotti

Prayer Flags. These flags and the Prayer Flag movement are covered in the first 12 pages. There are articles and instructions for making the basic flag; lots of colorful examples too! The rest of the 47 page book is devoted to making miniature flags. This is the equivalent of going from a potholder to an inchie! Again, there are instructions and TONS of colorful examples. Too bad more space wasn't devoted to the regular sized flags.

Prayer flags from Tibet Review by Ja
Rating

I would have appreciated more information on just what "Prayer Flags" are - recycled relics from an ancient religion.
"A prayer flag is a colorful rectangular cloth, often found strung along mountain ridges and peaks high in the Himalayas. They are used to bless the surrounding countryside and for other purposes. Prayer flags are believed to have originated with Bon, which predated Buddhism in Tibet. In Bon, shamanistic Bonpo used primary-colored plain flags in healing ceremonies in Nepal. They are unknown in other branches of Buddhism.[1] Traditional prayer flags include woodblock-printed text and images."....
"....Because the symbols and mantras on prayer flags are sacred, they should be treated with respect. They should not be placed on the ground or used on clothing. Old prayer flags should be burned."
