Union Jack blocks for Kristen


I completed these blocks for Kristen almost 2 weeks ago and can't believe I never posted them. I just walked in my sewing room and found them still on my design wall! (My schedule has been so crazy that I haven't walked into my sewing room since making these. I honestly thought I mailed them ages ago.)

This was a challenging block but I love the results when it's all done. Scant quarter inch seams get me every time. When I remember to move my needle over a tick, the sewing goes well. Unfortunately, I had a little unpicking to do on that first block. The second one was SO much easier to do once I had the hang of it. I know this is going to be a fun quilt!

This summer, I am going to be very busy with work. As an online teacher, my schedule is the opposite of traditional teachers because we get the most enrollments in the summer. In the fall, we can relax a bit more and that's when I take my vacations.
