Jack..... you make me so happy

 My Union Jack quilt is almost finished, yippeeeeee, I just need to put the binding on which I think I will do over christmas. I absolutely loved making this quilt, the blocks were easy and I loved mixing up different fabrics.
 Its so big, it fits on my bed just perfectly with quite a bit of  over hang which looks nice.

 Here is a close up of the quilting, its called Bubbles. I like this design, I wanted something simple and not floral. It took me about 3 hours to quilt it.
 I love this photo of the quilt all crumpled, it looks so snuggly don't you think?
 On Thursday night my youngest son had his grade 6 leavers dinner. It was a proud moment for us. They grow up too fast.
 He is nearly as tall as me already.
Our eldest son Daniel just loves having his photo taken with me, look how happy he is. lol And when did he get so tall.

Have a wonderful weekend, I plan to do some sewing, how about you?

Your quilt looks fantastic Leanne. My youngest had his graduation on Thursday too. It doesn't seem that long ago he started in prep. They certainly do grow up too fast.

The quilt is awesome! Having three sons myself, I can relate and they weren't always happy to be snuggly, but now that they are all grown up, I am so proud of them and I know you will be as well.

I LOVE your Union Jack! The colors are amazing! I actually got the pattern and have 3 blocks finished and was inspired to do so by you! I used my regular colors but, seeing yours, I love the blue and red. I may have to start another one.

Now you can start Summer Celebration, right? Your boys are so cute! I love that photo of the big one-lol.

Thanks for sharing!
