On Tuesday evening I decided to complete my Union Jack pillow cover that I started in Lynne's class at the FQ Retreat. I should have known better... late night sewing equals mistakes. For every seam I sewed, I then had to unpick it. I was determined not to go to bed until I was back to where I started, in terms of progress. It was well after midnight before I threw in the towel! Yesterday, I picked up where I had left off and had a much better sewing time with only minor problems getting the horizontal stripes to match.
I am pleased with how it turned out and have enjoyed the process of using paper piecing in making it. Lynne described paper piecing as marmite to the quilting world. I think that she is right and I definitely like it.
I am away for a long weekend in Belfast, leaving very early tomorrow morning. I am not back until Monday night so my blogging will be non-existent, but I am managing to squeeze in a coffee with a some quilting bloggy friends so watch this space....
