Paper Pieced Union Jack Pillow
When Katy came back from Quilt Market, she brought a huge bag of fabric bundles to my house. First of all I tried stealing some of the fabric bundles and hiding them behind the furniture but she noticed annoyingly. Nevertheless her kind side chose to overlook my attempts at petty theft and she distributed her fabric wealth amongst us (Brioni, Justine, Mandy and me) like the true princess she is.
She split her Rouenneries Deux Fat Eighth bundle with me and she loves Rouenneries so I know that was hard for her. I cut into that bundle yesterday and made a companion pillow to my Patriotic US flag pillow made from Etchings wovens a few weeks back. Once again, 28" X 18", the size of a UK bed pillow and my new favourite pillow size. If you'd like to have a go at making one of these, I may well be teaching a fun and informative "Paper Piecing a Union Jack Pillow" class at FQ London 2012. Be there or be square.
