You may recall that I recently received a lovely order of cool blues and neutrals from Pink Castle for a quilt I had in mind for my 11 year old Godson. I was thinking of an improv. quilt but decided in the end that he might prefer a Union Jack.
So yesterday, as the rain pelted down I made this monochromatic top. I wanted it to have a fairly retro feel to it. I used various shades of blues and neutrals. If you make a Union Jack quilt, you definitely have to concentrate so that you get the quadrants in the right order. I won't lie. The seam ripper came out more than once. But it's done.
Now before you accuse me of being a serial topper, the batting has arrived for my Man with a Stained Nature quilt and I'm all set to go. Except for the bad back that is! Oh and the mountain of other things on the to do list.
