little quilt monday~~~union jack

Little Quilt Monday

I decided to make a Union Jack mini quilt in honor of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee and the summer Olympics being held in London later this summer.

I am a little late to the Union Jack party.  One reason is because all the patterns that I found were for 
paper-piecing.   I am not fond of paper piecing, so I decided to make one my own way : )

I used some fabric from my stash,  the florals are from Piece of Cake,
 and I am not sure about the blue dot.

Now that I know how to make my Union Jack, I am going to make another 
with some of my Kaffe Fassett stash.   Who knows, I may even use
some of my Liberty of London fabric stash.....although, there isn't much left : ( 
I will take pictures of my process when I make the next one.

The Union Jack is ready for some hand stitching.  I plan to use red crochet thread for the stitches
 and hopefully, this mini quilt will be finished by Friday!

Now it is your turn to link up something to

Little Quilt Monday

1.  This link-up party is for any small project.  For example, mini quilts, doll quilts, baby quilts, place mats, mug rugs, purses,
wall quilts, table runners, etc.

2.  They can be a WIP(work-in-progress) or finished.

3.  If it is something from the past there is no need to write a new blog post, just link the one that you have already written, and please link back to my blog post.

4.   If you are interested, you can add your pictures to my flickr group here, or join my Facebook group here. 

Let's inspire each other!


I am linking up to Sew Modern Monday Fabric Tuesday,
and Whoop Whoop Friday.
