It's Wednesday, and I want to share my lastest W.I.P. (work in progress) with you. I LOVE the Union Jack block so I thought I should make a quilt of it, a quilt just for me, one I don't have to share, one I get to use when I want to snuggle on the couch.
I picked some bright, springy fabrics from Moda and set off chopping up the fabric. I wanted it to look just like the Union Jack Flag which has different width white strips...something I really hadn't noticed until I wanted to make this quilt.
So I chopped and sewed, chopped, sewed and chopped more. I had to trim the blocks down and they ended up alittle more square than I wanted but I love the look anyways. Now I just need to quilt it. I am thinking of using a Minky fabric for the back. Have you used Minky before?
I think I may need a pillow to go with and when I make the pillow I will take down the measurements and try to take some pictures to show you how I did it.
