Just passed the Halfway Mark!

Not much going on here lately, but I just passed the halfway mark and hope to finish the top this summer!  Here is my progress - not including the triangles and corner I have done!

My idea was to make an Old Mother Dear Jane Hubbard.
But the center block is too big.  I'd have to make spacer (ie sashing) of about 1/2" between the blocks or even less. I've thought about just taking the sashing off the center block and cutting it down 1/2"on each side.  or just having spacers at the corners. I like the proportion of the sashing to the center.

What should I do?

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

A-8 Florence Nightingale

I made this one yesterday afternoon. Using templates.

Very happy with the look of it.

Quilting THE QUILT

Hi there fellow Janiacs,
I haven't been on here for quite some time!! I finished the quilt top last year and have had it in the 'Too Hard' pile ever since. I have had it basted and now face the task of hand quilting!!!! I am not sure where to start - except probably in the middle!!
Does anyone know where to find the actual quilting design? There are no tips or instructions in the book.
Many thanks,
