Union Jack quilt and bag tutorials

For the past few weeks I have been playing with those Union Jack panels from Riley Blake that I blogged about a couple of weeks ago. 
Today I am sharing a super-simple tutorial for this "Jacks are Wild" crib-sized quilt, using the flags from the "Blue" Union Jack panel


This quilt was quilted by my friend Monica at American Quilting. I added a striped binding that I already had on hand. This quilt is going to a friend who lived in London and just had her first baby. I had wanted to make her a Union Jack quilt, but considering the fact that it took me 3 years to finish my Union Jack quilt, I worried that it would never happen. So three cheers for the cute panel blocks for making this quilt a realistic possibility before this child starts kindergarten.
I've also been playing with the "Orange" pastel panel to create some quick bags, using my Easy Fat Quarter Bag tutorial. These have gone together SO FAST.
The only modification is that I used a 12" x 20" panel and lining fabric instead of 11" x 18". Everything else is exactly the same.
I made both the purse and hand bag version. I'm hopefully going to whip out a few more of these quick to give to my girls friends as Christmas presents. SO cute.

Super cute. I'm going to have to make a bag for my mom. My brother went on a mission to England. She would love one!

I actually bought a panel of this fabric after seeing your post a while back. A friend is British and I made two super simple pillows out of the Union Jacks. They turned out so cute. Now I want to make a quilt, too!
