London 2013

16 comments
Last year I made the London 2012 quilt in the header of my blog, above.  I loved making the quilt and I blended the Olympics with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.  That quilt is a "one of" and I never intended to make another one or draw up a pattern for it.  
But, I've changed my mind.  With the Royal Baby coming any time now, and so many lovely compliments and questions about a pattern for my London 2012 quilt, I decided to make a new London 2013 quilt.
This new quilt will have some changes.  I'll incorporate things I've learned to do better, and different blocks to make the quilt all my own.  I'm redoing the London Eye.  Here is my work in progress, above.
I've had so much fun making flags and I've changed up my Union Jack to make it just a little simpler to make.
The latest London fabrics out there also pulled me back into this project.  There is just so much inspiration for me.
It was exactly year ago I was making London 2012 and as soon as it was done I missed making it. So it is really fun to change it up and make it just a bit different.

I wonder when that baby will be born???

Blessings always

Oh how exciting Nanette! That London Eye is going to be fantastic -- you're brilliant to use the striped fabric that way! I've been collecting UK fabrics for awhile now -- a union jack quilt is definitely on my list. Can't wait to see your new quilt -- I LOVE the original!!!

I love that you're making another one! Seriously, I need to make one of these one day.

Why am I so excited for the royal baby? I don't know, but I check first thing every morning to see if there's been an arrival. :) Glad I'm not alone.
