My finished Dear Jane Quilt top

Here is a picture of my finished MODERN Jane quilt top.
I sent it off to the Longarm studio. Here is a picture of my quilt with Valerie. (she is studying the quilt for design ideas)

Here is a close up of one corner...I hope you can see the scallops I drew in the borders. (you may have to click on the picture to enlarge it)

It feels wonderful to have this accomplishment behind me. I'm still working on my Civil War and 1930's versions of this quilt, hopeful to have those completed within a year.

Triangles, triangles........

I haven't posted on here for a while, so thought I'd pop by and let you know my progress.
I have completed all the top row triangles and joined them together, so this week decided to get a move on with the right hand side. Here is my progress.
Some of these were easy, but a couple caused a bit of torture!!! When I finally finished wrestling with the one with the circle (RS-3), I realised I had put the colours around the wrong way. Secret - I am definitely NOT going to repeat it!!! I also discovered I dislike set in seams intensely (RS-6).

More Rainbow Blocks

I may just succeed at catching up to finish in August. The back-log is down to 30 after this week's 7, and my progress chart just looks so COOL to me.  ;D   It's been a long haul. Well worth it. I'm so glad I started on this journey.  Have you worked on a Jane this week?








Last week's final wave of little Janes.

Here are the blocks I finished up last week. In addition to these I also completed LS8 triangle "Northern Lights".

Here is what my progress looked like by the time I was done:

Pretty good progress for me - I was very happy.
But wait there's MORE...I spent the entire weekend on Jane as well. I'll have the grand reveal for you all in just a couple of days!

Wishing you all a Happy & Productive week!

exhausted but happy....

The blocks I caught up last week

Oops - I forgot to enter my blocks last week. It was a good week, too. Lots of Jane babies have been lurking in my hand-stitch tote, and it's very relaxing to work on those in the evening. 12 blocks in the week! Most of those came from the hand-stitching, but a few off the machine. That pace is not happening this week, though.  ;D

So, the set:
