The Jack Quilt

Well, I certainly didn't intend to take the whole summer off from sewing and this blog,  I can hardly believe August is nearly over.  I have lots of good excuses, but the main reason is I am pregnant (again).  This will be #4, and we are really excited.  We find out next week what we are having, I can't wait.  My oldest started school last week, and we finally have some routine in our lives, and I might possibly have some time and energy to quilt.

Several months ago Sarah contacted me about testing her Union Jack Quilt Pattern for her.  I happily obliged and think it turned out really great.  There is no paper piecing, and fairly simple to put together.  I originally thought this would make it's way into a complete quilt, but lately I am thinking it would look really cool as a pillow.  hmmm...

you can find the pattern in Sarah's etsy shop, The Aftercraft

Congrats! Very cool! 4 is a great number. We have 6, and I honestly think that the babies get progressively more fun for me.

Preggos should totally take it easy. With my last, I nearly destroyed my back by sewing on the floor. (Weird, I know.) So just take care of yourself.
