I bought a PP Union Jack pattern and I downloaded a free one, then I did nothing with them for months….because I didn’t know HOW to paper piece! But now I do, because Elizabeth Dackson taught me how at a class in June! Now that I’ve got 4 stars under my belt and a little confidence built up, I whipped this fun little block up tonight after the kids went to bed.
Now….what do I do with it???
I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler').
I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!).
This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well.
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI!
How big is it? Make it a pillow. It looks great!
it’s 4.75×9 – weird pillow size! I think it has a future as a mug rug. 🙂
Looks great! I think SewCraftyJenn is right – how big is it? Mug rug, placemat, pillow, quilt inspiration… so many fun things you could create from this.
Thanks! I agree – lots of options! I started a second one tonight, but used a different pattern that will make a bigger version.
It’s very well done. It looks fantastic. You’ve got some really good suggestions here regarding what to do with it. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
No idea but it is looking great!
A mug rug, just what I was thinking. Nothing’s more British than the Union Jack and a nice cuppa 🙂
