Every time I make a Union Jack something or other, I imagine it will be my last. I'm not sure why because I love them so much. I am not some crazed patriot (although this was a great summer for the UK, what with the Jubilee and the Olympics) but I love the design of the Union Jack and I think it works well in so many fabrics.
Having made it in many different fabrics, I think floral prints and non geometric prints work really well. So when I spotted Pat Bravo's upcoming line Rock n Romance, I knew the prints would work up really well into Union Jacks. To me this line is Liberty meets punk rock. I love the colours and the designs and I confess that I love that the palette is limited so that even I can make sense of it.
So this is going to be a BIG TRIPLE JACK quilt. Three BIG JACKs sitting on top of one another to make a single bed sized quilt - 70" x 90" or thereabouts. And I wondered if you fancied making this quilt along with me? I was going to call it a JACKALONG but honestly that sounds a bit rude to me so I'm thinking of calling it a JACKATTACK instead. Rather than sewing along, we'll be attacking this pattern together.
If you're interested in making this BIG TRIPLE JACK quilt, leave a comment to let me know, start thinking about what fabrics you might choose. And in short order, I will make a button and we can hop on over to my Flickr group and start thinking about what fabrics might work in this quilt as well as introducing ourselves and finding out who else is JACKATTACKING along too.
