AYOS and a little bit more - February

I loved February's parttern, it was Fig Tree's Mini Jumping Jacks.

I chose Pam Kitty fabrics because they're bright and happy.
The orange fabric with the flowers by the blue dot is Flower Sugar.
I used a text fabric for the sashing just because I love text fabric!

I love this color combo, it's the traditional Union Jack colors.
I'm Canadian and this used to be our flag until 1967 when Canada was 100 years old.
I used to draw this flag all the time in Elementary school and it was really hard to get the right dimensions because the lines are different widths.
This block should have had a yellow dot, so I'll be turning this one into a real little mini mini :)

Here are my little blocks :)
Each one measures 8 l/2" X 9 l/4".

I used an older Flower Sugar pattern for the back, and a black and white houndstooth to match the text sashing.

I machine quilted in the ditch, around the sashing and each jumping jack block.

The finished quilt is 21 l/2" X 29 l/2".
I really love it!
You can see the parade of other quilts like mine at A Quilting Life and Pink Pincushion.

  1. Beautiful quilt and beautiful colors. Love your added sashing and posts. Yes, 1967, Grade 4 for me - I remember all our schools in the area putting on a huge performance for Canada's 100th in our city's auditorium. I still feel those huge spotlights shining on all of us as we performed the beginning of Canada's history. Your beautiful quilt inspires me to make one too!

  2. This is beautiful Cynthia! I love pam kitty!

  3. Cynthia, this came out just grand! Where in Canada are you? I blog from Cape Breton six months of the year .
