Union Jack Quilt

Sheila pieced this fantastic Union Jack quilt. 
Last year I had machine quilted a Swoon quilt for her and she loved how it turned out, so again she gave me free reign on this quilt.
I wanted to keep the machine quilting simple yet effective, so I machine quilted a wavy line that echos itself. I really love how it turned out.
I wish each one of  you were at my studio today so you could see and feel the texture that I was able to create on this quilt, sometimes I feel like camera's just can't capture it all. :)
Sheila also made a pretty awesome Union Jack quilt back.
Thanks again Sheila for letting me machine quilt your beautiful quilt.


  1. Like the quilting:) Think I like the first pic with the rose pattern in the middle of the flag. Is that Tube map fabric? Cute

  2. Oh could you ask her where she got the pattern?

  3. I love I! You made the perfect choice. I just sit around letting my new quilt. :)

  4. I love how you gave movement to the quilt with the quilting, it looks like flags blowing in the wind! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!:)

  5. Oh wow, that sure is a beauty, and SO unique!!! I just love to see the quilts that come your way! Thanks for sharing. :)

  6. My kids are half British (their Dad is from Scotland and I am Canadian). My teenager would die for a Union Jack quilt. He has a huge old flag hanging on one of his bedroom walls. Like the earlier poster would love to know where your friend found the pattern. Thanks.
