hail Britannia!

With Kate about to deliver the royal baby, Chris Froome winning the Tour de France, and Andy Murray winning this year’s Wimbledon, it seems timely to share my most recent finish, the Jack Attack quilt. It is shown here in front of the new East Wing of the St. Louis Art Museum, which was designed by British architect David Chipperfield.

For the back, I used a bandana print that I have had stashed for several years, and I tucked in a 1/4-yard London-themed piece that was too small to use in the quilt itself.

I bound it with a bright blue floral fabric.

Lynn Peterson did an outstanding job long-arm quilting this beast of a quilt. Look at all of the fun motifs and patterns.

I have a thing for the Oh Deer fabric collection by Moda. Cool swirls by Lynn.

  1. That turned out super-duper fantastic. Just in time for the new heir to the British crown. Boy or girl? Maybe we will know later today.

  2. What a great quilt! You did a beautiful job on it and your timing is perfect.

  3. Gorgeous! I love it! Perfect timing! It’s a boy!

    Also, you are the first one to the finish line. Even my top isn’t quilted yet–how embarrassing! Your little gift will soon be sent to you via e-mail.
