More Shabby Than Chic Union Jack

Shabby Chic Union Jack by Lily's Quilt

My first quilt finished and now on show at the Bloggers' Quilt Festival.  I previously blogged here about the making of it.  The pattern is over in the Moda Bake Shop and it is by Lynne of Lily's Quilts.

I decided to machine the binding and I was very happy it worked first time as I used this tutorial from Red Pepper Quilts.

As I used some donated scraps I do not know what fabric it is made from, except there is some French General Rouenneries in there, so if you want to play i spy, then please let me know what you can see.

The pattern requires large pieces of newspaper to be covered in fabric and then stitched to the paper.  I thought this was a fantastic idea and I sacrificed my souvenir copy of the Royal Wedding as it was the largest paper I had.



  1. looks brilliant Indianna! good to hear the machine binding went well not tried machine binding on anything other than a mug rug so far.

  2. Beautiful, but bye bye Will and Kate picture.
