Red Jane update


Round 2 of our Mother-and-Daughter sewalong is just done, and that means 10 more blocks have been placed in my bin.  I had picked out the last 10 blocks with the theme "criss-cross", and all blocks had some kind of an X.  Some blocks were easy, some weren't....

In between, I have made four blocks that were not on our list, and have also started on the triangles.  I don't think my daughter will make the triangles, so I figured that whenever I felt the urge of making more DJs than on our monthly list, I can make a triangle  As you can see, by now I have made three triangles. Two of them are just darling, with appliqued hearts.  The triangle to the left was paper pieced while we were on vacation.  Don't think I will do to many paper pieced blocks...

The main reason for placing all the blocks on my design wall was to see how the Red Jane would turn out, if I liked it, and if I should have white sashing on the blocks.
I do like it, even more than I had hoped for :-)

Marit has now announced the next ten blocks, with the theme "Diamonds are forever".  By the time we are done with these blocks, we will be experts on appliqueing diamonds!
