My Blog List
One Union Jack done, and only two more to go. I LOVE big block projects. Even though the larger blocks take more time, there's less sashing together and sewing into rows. So they seem to go faster.
This is my first Union Jack block complete.. this is also my first QAL, and my first time trying freezer paper. Well, I did Swoon-along, but I came so late to the party, I really don't count that one.. More things to add to my "Firsts in 2012" list. :)
Visit Lynne @ Lily's Quilts for the QAL details if you're interested in joining. You can also check out her flickr group for other Jack photos.
And b/c I didn't want to lose my momentum, as this is a special surprise house-warming gift for my WB, who has been temporarily forbidden to read my blog, and b/c I'm having so much fun with it, I have started cutting UJ#2.
I hope the red and blue fabrics that I picked will all go together in the end, and I hope she won't mind that I switched up the red and blue in a couple of them. Artistic license right? ;) Yikes. Fingers crossed.
Next one cut and waiting to be made:
And more late-night cutting, this time, the circa 1934 layer cake that I've been hoarding.. going to try to finish this by Christmas for my bro. and SIL.
..and one WIP I have yet to finish.. SWOON needs its binding. :/ Miles and miles and MILES of it. That needs to be done by Christmas, too. *sigh* Miles. I'm just going to have to make myself do it! It will feel so good to finish it up.
Well, that is enough for a WIP post. There are probably a couple of others that I could add in, but they may be considered UFO's at this point, instead of WIP's. I just need to work on these three things and get them done before I worry about the other three (or four) things that I'm choosing to ignore at the moment. :/
Thanks for dropping in. Hope you're having a great day! :)

beautiful job with your QAL! I have done one so far and am really looking forward to another! So much fun!I am stopping by from the WIP hop. I would love to have you stop by and see my WIP as well :) http://domesticdeficitdisorder.blogspot.com/2012/09/wednesday-wips.html
Oh my goodness, I love your Jack! It is amazing. I might have to get in on that QAL. And your swoon looks so great. It's always the little things that seem to take me the longest. Like cutting binding strips. It's not a big deal, but it's just getting it done... :)
