More than a year later...

...and I'm attempting to get Baby Jane quilted AGAIN!

I'm going to try to spend 30 minutes working on this most days. And keep her on the machine until I'm done - which I'm pretty sure won't happen.

After spreading her out on the bonus room floor, I now know that I have the triangles on two sides plus two of the corner kites quilted, as well as "some" quilting on 48 of the blocks.

Seeing that I also determined that it takes me around 15 minutes to quilt a block, I do not even want to do the math...

Back to work!

After a long hiatus, my original Baby Jane went back under the quilting machine yesterday. I'm hoping to work on her a little each day.

I've been a little hesitant about this quilt because I made the mistake of jumping right into quilting her when I bought my new Handi Quilter Sweet 16. It was NOT a good idea to use this quilt as a practice quilt and I was quite upset with myself for a long time.

After assessing the situation yesterday, I decided that it's not as bad as it looks. It's amazing what a difference a little time can make.

Onward and upward!

A-8 Florence Nightingale

I loved making this one. It would be great as a signature block.

Not sure how anyone could make this one without foundation piecing. Tiny sections!
