Remember my Union Jack quilt blocks?  Well, I’ve made a little progress since then on my quilt.   I really love each different flag block.   But a quilt emergency has arisen and three of my Union Jacks have been requisitioned for duty in a more pressing project.   A special friend of mine is coming to visit in a couple of weeks. She is from Norway.  We met each other when I lived in England and were roommates for about 5 months.  She is like a sister to me. I’m pretty sure we are somehow distantly related.  (I have a Norwegian Great-Grandfather, so I have some Viking blood in me somewhere.)  Julie is probably the closest friend at the greatest distance. She lived with me at the same time as my friend Sarah and she was the one who called to tell me of Sarah’s passing.   And so I decided to make her a quilt!  Julie is 100% Norwegian – has lived in Oslo most of her life, but her parents were living in New Jersey for a short time when she was born, so she has dual citizenship.   Which means three different country’s flags for her quilt. …
