A1...on my way...

Hello... I have finally made my first block again...
I started my Dear Jane way back a few years ago
 I chose colors I no longer am drawn to so then
 I had to think what colorway would I do...
 This has taken me 3 months..agonising over the colors etc.
There are so many gorgeous Dear Jane's around it's hard to chose
Would I use a light background or dark...what fabrics?
 Anyhow I decided I am using all the Fig Tree fabric ranges
I have in my stash and using a seeded Homespun
as the background as it looks feed stack-y. 
I will follow Jane's color placement for my Dear Jane.
 So last night after 3 attempts, 1, a foundation piece was tossed..
 too hard and fiddly for me... then 2 attempts with rotary cut pieces.
 One looks better so is a keeper.
 I am pleased and have now completed A1...
Now to do a few more....LOL
I may just do the green fabric blocks to start with..
 Happy Jane-ing
 Hugs Dawn x x x

I did a very similar thing...changed the colors midstream...but it all took me much longer. I'm still working on my DJQ. I am very glad that I changed the colors. You can read about it at http://minkasstudio.blogspot.com/2008/04/colors-for-baby-jane.html
