WIP Wednesday 9/10/14

Now that the Texas quilt is done (insert happy dance here), I've been able to move back to my Union Jack quilt.  My daughter goes to Churchill High School and, of course, the Union Jack is their school flag.  She graduates this year so it's time to get moving on her graduation quilt.

Sunday I made this one...

 
I'm using my stash of "Chance of Flowers," by Moda.  Aren't they fantastic colors??  Monday came this one....

 
The pattern is from an issue of McCall's Quilting from early this year.  And last night was this one....

Here's a shot of what I have done so far on my design wall...
 
 
She's like me and doesn't really like small quilts so I'm making this one pretty big and doubling the number of blocks from the original pattern for a total of 36 blocks.  They are paper pieced and go together pretty quickly.  The actual assembly only takes about an hour per block but the cutting takes time.  I'm getting a rhythm though so hopefully I'll get it done soon.  My niece is also a senior this year and I have another paper pieced quilt to get through (hers is much more time consuming) so I need to get a move on it!

What are y'all working on??  Linking up with Freshly Pieced.

great job! I'm thinking of making one block for a gift - can't wait.
