In my stash was the red and cream, both Liberty fabric scraps, and the navy, a 1980’s Laura Ashley dress, I can’t find a picture of the dress but I guess if you were around in the 80’s you’d remember those dresses, huge mutton leg sleeves, drop waist, voluminous skirts,(think a newly married Princess Diana). Needless to say….. There is enough left to make something else as well, and I already have an idea.

So where to find a pattern? I could have spent hours searching the internet for a pattern but fortunately and coincidentally on Armed Forces Day there was a pull out supplement in the newspaper; an advert on the back page pictured half a union flag which was just the right size, so I traced and reversed it to create a sectional pattern to work from. The red diagonal stripe is appliquéd onto the white, the rest of the pattern is pieced.

    If you want to see this cushion " in the flesh" as it were, it will be found in a Quilt exhibition at Bilsborough Village Hall on the A6 North of Preston in Lancashire, 19th, 20th and 21st of April, I'll be stewarding on Saturday morning, see you there.

    Very Pretty. I really like the Union Jack done in florals. It's interesting and unexpected.
