Rainbow Jane J-11

Row J is now done, but I haven't made a single block in rows K-M.

Steady progress

I should count how many melons Jane appliqu├ęd!
She clearly loved them.

Rainbow Jane J-10

This took about 12 hours total.
It turned out better than the original, I think.
The main reason was that I used the "freezer paper on top" method for the new one and I had used the "freezer paper inside" method originally.
I you have paper inside your shapes it makes them just a tiny bit larger and, on a block this little, it makes a huge difference.
If the shapes are too big, you really have to squish them into their spots.

Rainbow Jane I-10

I had trouble with this one last night.
Finished is better than perfect, right?

This blog now has a Facebook page!

I personally find it easier to keep up with Facebook pages than blog readers, so I figured there must be others who feel the same way.

The blog will still publish to readers but all posts will appear on the Facebook page as well.

This is where I'm at

It took a couple of hours, but I think I have my ducks in a row...
Block Progress as of 10/12/11
Not that many blocks left, actually.

First, a lesson. Don't do this:
Make blocks halfway, then store them in little ziplock baggies without labeling them. You won't remember. Trust me.

Batik Jane

(This is a double post, so if you read my other blog too, my apologies).

I'm not doing much myself right now, but a friend and I went "Stash Dashing" on Friday.
As you may or may not know, I'm a little obsessed with Dear Jane quilts.
This one is made with batiks.

(It is on display at Heirloom Quilts in Poulsbo, WA.  The lady who made it works there but did not want to pose for a photo. Hats off to her for this absolutely lovely work of art!)
