Every time I think I am done with making the Union Flag, another idea comes and nestles in my head! I have been slowly but surely making quilt blocks for a quilt depicting things in my life that I cherish, things that make me smile. As you found out from my previous post, the old television series Dad’s Army is definitely among the top of the list. So how could I not make a paper piecing pattern for something that makes me smile every time!
The Union Flag part is paper pieced and there are some very small pieces. If I set my stitching length on the sewing machine fairly small, sewing small pieces is not really a big problem. I also meticulously trim and iron, specially when I am working with small pieces. I just love the detail they add to the block.
An update on the Halloween Blog Hop – Kimi has updated her pattern, Wicked Candy, with a better printable format.
