Abbey's Eye done

This is the last one I need to make my mini DJ of about 20 blocks or so.  I'm thinking of calling it Mother and Chicks.  Now I just have to find the other blocks -LOL.

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!

It's exciting to me to look at the chart when we moved to Colorado at the very end of June (which shows it way behind)







compared to today's chart, all caught up:



















A couple of weeks ago, several folks asked how I get so many Baby Janes done in a short time frame without devoting 24/7 to them. I'll post about that next time, when I'm back to only having a couple of blocks per post to share.

In the meantime, it's somebody else's turn to share their Jane project.  ;D

The last two weeks' worth

Been putzing my way through my Baby Jane pile between intense spurts of work on quilt-top assembling. Here are the last two weeks of block production. I just love the little alien and his ship on F-9.
