The lovely, funny and talented Amy Smart (who lived a stone's throw from where I lived back in the day although we didn't know it at the time and didn't quilt at the time so it wouldn't have been relevant anyway) has just revealed her Union Jack quilt which she has been working on for many many moons now so I've decided to do the same. Mine was started over two years ago when I designed a union jack block which then went on to be the bee block in Fresh Modern Bee II.
The UJs are made from several Fig Tree lines but mostly Whimsy. The blocks are pieced by me and by my fellow bee members in Fresh Modern Bee II (thank you so much ladies for your patience...!). The blocks are sashed at a jaunty angle and then wide-sashed using the perfect red dot from Cosmo Crickets Circa 1934 line for Moda. The quilt is backed with another Fig Tree fabric, California Girl. The pattern for this quilt will be appearing in the coming-very-soon next edition of Fat Quarterly.
