Union Jack quilt pattern
UPDATE: I actually made on that works.. click here...
I want to make this quilt.. but I can't find a pattern for it.
My fiance is English... I lived there for a few years.. and I love the Union Jack.
I also love the idea of a Quilt of these.
A few years ago I machine sewed into plain blocks the union jack.
You can see it here.
Once upon a time I had a Union Jack umbrella.. which I mistakenly brought to Ireland.. which I further mistakenly opened up on a rainy day which was then taken off of me by some irish boys. Which I then yelled at that I needed an umbrella so they proceeded to hand me some euros and told me to buy a new one. They were actually quite nice about it and it was a rather humorous moment of my life. Educational as well. Union Jacks in Ireland- is a no-no.
Anyways... this isn't perfect..I might try paper foundation..
ALWAYS wash your fabric, notice the bleed from the red?? Damn it!
I love the colours.
Once I get it sorted I will be sharing it.. if I can explain it :)
