I’m back to working on my Sampler quilt, and my latest block is going to a a paper-pieced version of the Union Jack flag.
I knew this fabric wouldn’t work within the flag but want to use it to fill out the block underneath, since my “hole” in the quilt for the block is square and the Union Jack isn’t. I think I’ll applique hearts with this fabric underneath the finished flag.
I love all things Great Britain, especially Cath Kidston, and wanted to make something with Cath flair. I pulled this darling pink print and wanted to use it for the red parts of the flag.
And then I got stumped. I pulled out all my possible blue fabrics.
And none of them were cutting the mustard. I went to my favorite quilt shop, Smith Owen, where I had a $25 gift card. And found these:
But was still undecided. Until I remembered this print, which I had also picked up there. If this isn’t Cath Kidston esque, I don’t know what is!
But it doesn’t really seem to POP with the pink print.
I then dug out this fabulous polkadot print that my Granny gave me from her stash. (Or was it from Bev’s stash? I can’t remember. All I know is that I LOVE this fabric.)
Now I am quite undecided over the whole thing. Can you help? I’ve put together a little collage of my possible combinations. Which do you like best? Which one(s) are NOT going to work, no matter how much I like them?
I crave your honesty. I’m set to start piecing her on Friday night. Please help!
