Why am I sew excited?

Have you ever started a project and been so deliriously happy and enthusiastic about making it that you drop EVERYthing you should be doing? Sure I got bills to pay.. but I might even call in sick JUST to do more... Jebus... I can't stop.

Oh yes.. I am at it again. Finally perfected my Union Jack quilt block pattern. I have now made 6 blocks and each one is going faster and easier. No more crazy bang my head into a wall and crying over another wasted metre of fabric.

I'm not sure this one fits in.. but maybe I'll have to make two quilts since this one is supposed to be for my sudo-step daughter. She's gonna bust a brain cells or two when she sees this me thinks.

But I love the fabrics!! and How it's turning out.. each block is 22 inchs by about 14.. so it's gonna be a good sized one.

YAYNESS!!!! Ok.. now that mystery quilts REALLY REALLY needs to be worked on.. maybe just one more union jack block... just one more..


  1. OMG! I am making this quilt - called Victory Garden and it's a Union Jack quilt block. I absolutely love this block...what fun! I'm doing mine in red, white, and blue and lots of dots too.

  2. This is so beautiful! And you are so talented. I'm truly jealous!

    Completely off topic, I just awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award. I'm not sure if you've received one before, or if you're even familiar with it. But you can check out what I wrote about your blog and see the award over on my blog post: Someone Really Likes Me! (I hate spamming, and this kind of feels like it, but I really wanted you to know how much I enjoy your blog!)

  3. that quilt is amazing! I love it!

  4. I can see why you might foresake everything else in pursuit of making these blocks, they are GORGEOUS!

  5. This is a really FAB quilt. I must do one myself. peace and stuff from the U.K.

  6. Love, love, love it!! I hope that someday I can get it together and make a UJ block myself!!! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
