Back to Quilting




This morning the temperatures were in the 50's and the coolness awoke the urge to make quilt blocks. About 2 years ago a friend and I began our Dear Jane quilts as a way to keep in touch over the internet, swapping photos and extra emails. However, the idea of completing the quilt became daunting and we faltered (read stopped). But the need to sew resurrected my project and this evening I finished A-11; one more block and I'll have the first row done. See what I mean? A daunting project. I've seen Dear Janes that are so incredible! As amazing as the women who have completed them. Now I'm back on track and hope to pick up speed. Here's a photo of the first one I did. It's probably a year or nearly two since I began. But hey, slow and steady can get to the finish line. Wish me luck!

Hi Cathy,
I love seeing your Baby Jane block up on your blogsite and hope I can get into the mood to work on mine too. Kids are back in school, the cottonwood tree that always is the first to show colors has a sprinkling of yellow amongst the green, surely fall is in the air and that means time to quilt.
