I'm so happy to be back working on my Dear Jane...
This is the first time this year that I have been able to get back to Jane.
I am doing my DJ in the Quilt-as-You-Go method...you can see the progress of last years blocks on my Dear Jane blog
I'm doing the Q-A-Y-G in sections of 4 blocks across by 4 rows down, my quilt will be a little smaller than Jane's.
Today I have just joined some blocks together ready for sandwich / basting and hand quilting, and hopefully time permitting make up some more blocks.
Just to be different, I am going to do a medallion centre piece on my DJ, but at this stage I still have lots more blocks to do...
My next to do project...
Last week, I received this book and CD for making Rosemary Youngs Civil War Love Letters quilt.
The book is full of beautiful letters that the soldiers wrote and sent home to their families, one of soldiers in the book who sent letters is Rutherford B Hayes, who later became the 19th President of the United States of America.
Come October, I am going to join in with a group of girls online and do the blocks with them, this is a great way to keep motivated and inspired....and hopefully have a beautiful quilt at the end of the project!
Off to do some more DJ blocks..
