Hello ...

It's fantastic to see the response to Vicki and Dawn starting this blog, I know when I started my first Dear Jane one of the things that helped motivate me was posting photos about my progress on my blog and then receiving feedback by way of comments.


This is my Kind of Blue DJ which I started in January 2010, it was my only large project for the year so I finished all the piecing by December 2010, then took a rest break before joining it all up ready for quilting which is where I am at now. I have machine quilted the sashing and some of the blocks and now I'm hand quilting the rest of the blocks.

About two months ago I decided that I would start making another DJ, so far I have three blocks completed so this blog will be great motivation in keeping me going.

It's lovely and I love it in blues!! I can't believe you did it all so fast...wow. I'm easily distracted and have too many quilts started.

Totally fabulous!!! Your picture is the point where I'm at now-- top pieced but needing the last border. Knowing that you're in the process of quilting yours is making me want to get going on mine! I'd love to see how you're quilting your blocks. (I need all the inspiration I can get!) :)
