I’ve made some more progress on my Dear Jane blocks – I’m up to 26 blocks completed! Cutting and piecing such small blocks is making me be a lot more accurate. I have 9 blocks in row A completed, I’m debating putting them together with the sashing. Another 52 blocks and I’ll have the first 6 rows completed! I’m not sure why I waited for a year to start working on this quilt. I think it’s just thinking of all the blocks that need to be completed. I can’t wait to get the whole thing finished and take it to the guild meeting for show and tell. I’m thinking about sending an email to the shop where I’m getting the BOM from to ask them to send me 2 a month. Since I’m on such a roll, I don’t want to be waiting for more fabric to arrive!
I also can’t believe that I’m thinking about fabrics for another one. I’ve seen some very pretty rainbow ones that I’d love to do using Moda Marbles, now that would be a nice looking quilt if you find the right background (maybe there’s a white or cream Moda Marble?).
Something interesting happened yesterday, I was shopping at Joann’s and was trying to get past a couple of ladies looking at patterns. They were commenting on how hard it looked. I couldn’t help myself and asked “Can you sew a straight seam? If so, you can do this.” One of the ladies walked away to look at something else, but Janice stayed to talk to me for a few minutes. She asked if I taught classes. So I gave her my phone number and told her to call me after the holidays. I might just have something else to do during the days now!
Gotta run, time to get ready to meet the in-laws for drinks!
