Union flag complete

A week after it was started, my Union Jack pillow is now complete

I started this in Lynne's paper piecing class last Saturday at the retreat (it already seems like longer than a week ago!)  I managed one quarter of it in the class and finished the rest on the Sunday whilst watching the river paegent.  I went for lots of dotty fabric, although the white on the flag is actually stripey

 And in keeping with the stripes on the front, I went with a blue stripey backing fabric (aka an old duvet cover from the charity shop!)

It looks perfectly at home on my settee!


  1. Lovely finish Catherine - hard to beat dots!

  2. Great work! It looks lovely on the settee.

  3. That looks great! Awesome job. =D
