Finally, after many months, I have actually done some quilting. It is two years (time flies, I thought it was only one) since I made a couple of cradle quilt sandwiches. Yesterday I pulled out this one, which was on top, and couldn't believe the timing. What could be better than a little Union Jack quilt to work on a few days before the Coronation? Now the quilting is finished, and I have found just the right fabric in the stash to use for the binding. It is not often that I use so many blues because I always think the effect can be cold, but this quilt has made me decide I should make an effort to use them more often - throwing in the muted turquoise and pale duck egg shades has made all the difference.
