My sister and I had a long overdue Dear Jane marathon. We do these marathons now and again where we set aside a couple days on the calendar to work on our Dear Jane quilts. This has been a project that has been going on for years for us and every once in a while we sit ourselves down and give ourselves a stern talking to. Not really, it is more like we get on the phone and talk about how we really need to make some progress. We are over a hundred blocks along by now (really it is over 200 if you are counting both our quilts) and there are one hundred and sixty nine blocks (4 1/2” finished) total. And that is just the middle. We aren’t even talking about the pieced triangle border yet because that just causes us to break out in a sweat. So here is what I accomplished over the last two days…
I-13, Sweet Harmony
K-8, Springbrook Park
D-1, Alison’s Guiding Light
At the beginning of our Dear Jane journey we split up all the blocks evenly. Now I am trying to strike a bargain with her that I will do some of her paper pieced blocks that have a bazillion pieces if she will do some of my teeny tiny applique blocks. I am not sure if she will go for it though. Maybe if I throw in picking out all the paper from the paper pieced blocks before handing them over to her. Think that will work?
