Union Jack and March 2014 Monthly Mosaic

Union Jack

While you're browsing Lily's Quilts blog and the link ups for Fresh Sewing Day, check out her Union Jack wall hanging tutorial, the Jack Attack QAL and this recent beauty.  I'm making a secret one of some sort with these:
The four Andover London fabrics were purchased specifically for this and I'm pretty sure about the sketch black and white in the center.  The others are just stash auditioning for the part.  

Should I make one jumbo sized Union Jack or a bunch of small ones?

Vaca Fabric - Stash Expanded

We stuffed the large flat rate box to the brim and it was waiting for me when I got home. 
Isn't it hard to believe my pretty pile of possibilities came from this messy heap?  Digging for treasures was quite exhilarating I must admit.  My sister and I had a blast and it's probably a good thing this place is an airplane ride away or I might need an intervention.

You would think with only one out of four completed in 2014 FAL Q1 that I would be conservative with my mosaic but instead I'm tossing them all out there (well not ALL).  Linking up with Katy @ The Little Thistle's 2014 FAL Q2 goal setting party.

Spring Blossoms

So many quilters and bloggers are also great cooks and gardeners - you may have noticed that I am neither.   Fortunately a few of my plants have survived and thrived, especially with the recent bout of rain to interrupt our drought.  I'm please to share this shot from my front yard:
Hope you're enjoying flowers in your neck of the woods too.  Happy Quilting!


  1. Where on earth was that glorious stack/fabric heap?

    1. The SAS Fabric Superstore in Tempe AZ - isn't it ridiculous?!

  2. 10 QAL Q2 projects! Wow that's impressive. Your work is so beautiful, I can't wait to see what you get done.

  3. I live real close to that store and try to only go in 3 or 4 times a year because it is a workout and I tend to get a bit nuts! Great finds though!
