The Union Jack quilt that I made with the help of the Compass Quilters bee group is finished!
After finishing the top in September, I dropped it off with Donna to be long-arm quilted in large, circular loops. When it came back, I added a red polka dot binding, and it was done!
If you want to make your own Union Jack quilt, the free foundation paper template and step-by-step instructions are available here. Around each block, I added 2-inch sashing in a navy blue polka dot and scrappy red 2-inch cornerstones.
When I first started planning this quilt, it was going to be Button’s, but Button, my eight-year-old electric blue Mini, was the victim of Mini-slaughter earlier this year when another car did not stop at a stop sign and smashed into us. Now, it is Poppy’s quilt, and we plan to take it on many Mini adventures and picnics.
If Poppy could talk, I am sure she would say that she is happy with her quilt.
