Union Jack Quilting Bee

Saturday, August 16, 2014
I started a Quilting Bee within our squadron Spouses Group to have something to show for our time in England.  'A deployment is perfect timing for new projects' said all of my unfinished projects.  I invited any and all who wanted to participate in the hopes that it would encourage me to actually finish it!

This was our 'inspiration.'  
Thought it was quite fitting to do a Union Jack Quilt while stationed abroad in England. 

Here are a few pics of our 'Sweat Shop' as I like to call it.  
Perk of a deployment: not needing my dining room for dining ;) 

Our 'cutting station' set up in my kitchen.

What my quilt looks like so far.  It's turning out way better than I thought! 

All I need to do is finish the border and send it to a long arm quilter in Utah- I'm not brave enough (or crazy enough) to quilt it myself…yet.    

It's so great to see all the fabrics and color choices that the other girls chose.  Color schemes that I would never have picked myself but love! It's lead me to buy some of the same fabric for my next quilt ;)
