I was asked in 2011 to make a quilt with Union Jacks for my sons family camping holidays. When I had completed this quilt I was inundated with requests from friends for the pattern and this was the start. It is a quilt even for people who don't 'do' quilts. It will never date and even in 100 years time the Union Jack may have changed but it will always be The Union Jack. It is brilliant for Brits anywhere in the world, for whenever there is a reason to celebrate or just for watching The Cricket, The Tennis, Concerts by the lake or picnics in the Park. Inside on a bed or couch, or outside on the grass or beach it is unseasonal and practical. For 2012 it represents a souvenir to make for a family member or friends to celebrate our Queens Jubilee or The Olympic Games held in London. I have found however that one is not enough, all the boys in my family want one and so now I'm on my fourth.

I have always, always loved patchwork quilts and as my children grew up and I had more free time it became quite an addiction. I love to create my own patterns often just sketched on the back of an envelope or something. I was always a doodler, but now with cell phones I think that too is a dying art - my best doodles were when I was on the phone. I try not to create too big a stash of fabrics, but I do find that it is often the fabric that inspires a quilt in the first place. On my visits to the USA (it was formerley the yellow pages that I had to rely on to find the best shops, but isn't the internet wonderful) when visiting an area and I must confess that there were times when I have been enthusiastic about a certain place to visit, unbeknown to my husband, and just 'happened' to fall upon a wonderful quilt store. I made the Union Jack quilt for myself originally but was asked repeatedly for the pattern. It is a wonderful quilt to make and a treasure forever,
