This is the other half of a pair of Union Jack pillows I made for my best friend in 2012. Intimidated by the invisible zipper, I never finished the pillows. My mom sewed the zipper in the first pillow when I was home for Christmas 2012, but then we never found the time to finish the second one. So I gifted just the one pillow last Christmas, and my mom finished off the second pillow sometime last year after I left. So finally, one year later, my friend now has a complete pair.
As with the first pillow, I used Busy Bee Quilt Designs Victory Garden pattern. Both pillows share a small red border and solid red backing. I totally love the Japanese cotton/linen London print.
Lesson learned : speedy finishes = envelope closures and not zippers!
