Wow, this week is going so fast. My thoughts of having lots of time to quilt have gone right out the window. It has been a good week. We had a wonderful dinner at my sister's for Easter. Salad, ravioli, spaghetti, meatballs and sausage...it was all delicious. The rest of the week has been spent running to appointments, taking the kids to the doctor, taking my older daughter job hunting and soon I'll be leaving to meet my sister for lunch. A busy week, but a good one!
Here are the few Dear Jane blocks I have managed to complete...can you tell I like to do the applique blocks? I have one more that I really struggled with, but now I can't find it. I hope I haven't lost it for good...I don't want to make that one again! It's a slow process, for me at least, as I try to squeeze these in among my other projects. It has never been a priority...just one of those projects I'd like to finish in the next 20 years or so! The close ups are just to give you an idea of the fabrics I'm using. Most are Robin Pandolph's Christmas fabrics, but there will be others in the same color families mixed in. I don't want it to be a Christmas quilt...just a pretty quilt!
I did manage to finish the quilting on an Amish style quilt that I had on the machine. I'm hand sewing down the binding now, so once that's done I'll post a picture.
