When Lynne of Lily's Quilts announced the Jack Attack quilt-along, I must have been sleeping as I read the post, because I didn't really think anything of it. But later some more posts about the quilt kept popping up and all of a sudden I thought - I WANT ONE! I NEED ONE! (I also thought "I don't really have time to make on" but that thought is being supressed.)
The quilt will be something like this - 3 enormous Union Jacks put together:

I already put the Jack Attack button on my side bar, even though I don't have the fabric for it yet! I just think the button is so cool!
I have been wanting to get some fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics because they look so awesome, but I haven't had a good excuse until now. I am going to use the Modernology collection in the chic pink colorway. Why haven't I bought fabric yet? Because I entered a giveaway for this fabric and I'm hoping to win (yeah, right!). Fingers and toes crossed until tomorrow...
This is the fabric collection - beautiful, right?
And if that isn't enough, I am also just getting started on a baby quilt - made entirely of precut charm squares (instant gratification).
This is the pattern:
And the fabric I'm using is Oh Deer! by MoMo for Moda. It "somehow" ended up in my shopping cart a little while back and I think it will work well for this quilt.
So - there you have it. Two new quilts in the works. Don't know when I'll actually have time to sew them...
