The weather was extremely wet and miserable today so I decided to stay in and make some more Union Jack blocks. Everything was going extremely well until the fifth block and I cut the template paper that determines the diagonal pattern with the rotary cutter!! Now if I'd of used my brains, I would have scanned the template before cutting it out and I could have just printed a new one. I was so eager to make a block I didn't think and I cut the template straight from the pattern. I did manage to make another block so that I could at least make a small lap quilt. Maybe somethings are meant to be because its a nice size for a lap quilt (26 x 54 inches). The original quilt consist of 15 blocks and is 72 x 91 very big. I love this little quilt even more because almost all the fabric came from my wonderful friend Janet from her spring clean. (she has such good taste in fabric). I started to make this quilt for my little man but after block two I decided the fabrics where quite floral themed and maybe a bit girlie. With this in mind my thoughts turned to Paige, she goes to Uni in September and I would like to make her a new quilt to take with her. However, by block three I new it was for me as I was completely in love with it and I knew I could not give it away.
