Now I'm not a great big fanatical loony fan of the royal family or anything like that but it is a big day tomorrow here in the UK what with the royal wedding n all, not least because we have been given a bank holiday so we can sit indoors and watch royalty driving through London in carriages waving at the commoners lining the route, waving plastic flags and wearing plastic flag hats.
So here's a little flag waving in my garden to mark the occasion. The flag is called "Double Fat Jack" because it's a union jack made from two Fat Quarters, both of which came from my new Sew Fresh Fabrics Unafraid of Colour bundle because, frankly, I am terrified of colour so I asked Peg and Becca to make me a bundle which would force me to feel the fear and do it anyway.
Double Fat Jack measures 22" X 30" and may join with some other Double Fat Jacks later on in the year for a Double Fat Jack Quilt-a-Long if anyone fancies such a thing. What with the royal wedding and the membership of the new Brit Quilt Flickr group for quilters in Britain hitting 100 this week, I feel we need to do something to celebrate and a Double Fat Jack quiltalong might be just the thing - it would of course be open to quilters all around the globe.
And finally, what is your Royal Wedding name? You start with Lord or Lady, add one of your grandparents' first name, then your surname is a double barrelled name made up of a street where you were born, have lived or now live and the name of one of the pets you have had during your life. May I introduce myself, I am Lady Joy Finch-Wally.
