Patchwork Union Jack Quilt
Did you know it's only called the "Union Jack" when it's at sea? I was enlightened during a pub chat a while back, and was completely aghast to think I'd been misusing the name/ term for the last three years. Oh dear oh dear.
Here is my Union Flag quilt. Made with teeny tiny itsy bitsy two inch pieces. I love her.
The top before the quilting part:
I always said quilting wasn't me. Well, it is now.
Oh it was so much fun to piece this together and then free motion quilt it with my new darning foot from Howden's Sewing Machines in Yorkshire. I will be quilting now for a while. :)
Practiced on the hot pads first.
Then I just went for it!
The back is indigo linen. I love how the stitching shows up.
It's not perfect, but if I'm honest, perfection is boring.
Don't you agree? ;)
(Say "yes I totally agree Natalie, absolutely.") lol
