Thanks so much for starting this blog girls, it will definitely help me to keep this project moving along!

I started my DJ a few years ago, I have the software and have found it an excellent way to get and keep organised.

I'm doing my DJ in 1930's fabrics with a white background. I never really liked Civil War fabrics, but in the last few years I have come to like them so wish I started in them, but never mind, I still love the 1930's so I'll have a nice, bright Jane!

(Oh, and on another note, I have started the Farmer's Wife quilt in Civil War fabrics ... but that's a whole other story!!!)

So far, I've completed 46 blocks, which are all the beginner ones according to the software. I'm hand-piecing them all, which is my first ever hand-pieced project. I pretend I'm Jane, sitting at night stitching!!

Here are my most recent blocks, and hopefully I'll have another newly completed one to post soon!
