Tickled pink for Valentines!

I'm super thrilled to be a part of the Modern Quilt Guild  "100 days of Modern Quilting". They are running a fabulous series that is 14 weeks long. Each week they are exploring different quilt themes along with a weekly tutorial. It's a plethora of information and inspiration. Seriously.. GO check it out.

Today they featuring my Union Jack quilt. If you haven't heard me pap on about it enough well here's your chance to hear some more!
Jane Sassaman meets Heather Ross
On a quick side note this baby is finally going to be flying across the world in about a month to its rightful owner so she can love it to death or do whatever she wants. I designed it for my pseudo step daughter who is the an inspiring amazing 12 year old.

Because her and her father are big Union Jack flag lovers I decided to make one just for her. I'd dabbled before in some thread drawing for her Dad on a quilt, but this one.. I wanted the whole deal... WITH NO PAPER PIECING. I have a fear of it. Ok it's just not mastered quite yet. One day perhaps.

Anyways after quite a few failed attempts I got it. It's super easy... each block takes about 45mins to an hour. You can decide how big you want it and I am currently working on a baby sized one in beautiful Moda fabrics.

Anyways thanks MQG for featuring me!

Have a GREAT Valentines!! and of course HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!! I love you!

    1. Hi!!!! Thank you. I work for the gov now not far from the store. I know.. I miss it there and my customers, but now I can afford my habit! lol.

  2. I just saw your quilt on the Modern Quilt Guild's blog and then read your post saying you were featured. I hadn't put two and two together until that moment. Great to see a BC quilter featured in 100 Days of Modern Quilting! I love your spin on the Union Jack!
