I found this quilt pattern on the pinterest and couldn’t get it out of my head. I had to try it! So, I got up this morning, made banana smoothies, did not turn on my computer or the TV, and got sewing. I sewed in complete silence – no podcasts or anything – I wanted to focus on the sewing. I started cutting and sewing and following the directions and before I knew it, I had 4 blocks made! Sadly, they were all the same. Oof. No matter how I arranged them, it wouldn’t come close to the Union Jack.
Back to the drawing board.
I brought out the iPad and made each square, following the instructions step by step and made 3 more squares. I took a break for lunch and then sewed those squares all together! Hooray! Time to take photos!
I decided I wanted to pick acorns at Hume Park today, so I rolled up my finished quilt top and took it with me to the park.
Then I got to the park! And I got out my camera to take photos and…
I left the battery charging on the wall at home.
No acorn photos for us. I’ll have to go back another day. There were plenty of acorns (I picked a bunch) and dogs at the dog park. One thing I figured out today, when I miss having a dog, I’ll just go down to the dog park. I got to pet plenty of dogs and a few even licked me on the face.
Yay! Union Jack time! Hey, wait…hang on.
The centre piece isn’t right.
It’s supposed to be solid.
DRAT. So close. I guess I have to pull those last two pieces apart and, well, I guess the last 4 pieces a part and try again.
I feel like this guy.
On the plus side, I got ALL the characters facing the right way, so that’s a good thing.
I’ll get cracking, and fix that centre piece right up.
