Dear Jane

Okay, I've signed up to do the Rainbow Jane and ordered BOMs for the next two years! It's sold out, but I wanted you to see what an undertaking it is! I just fell in love with the colors and just couldn't help myself! Well, all the monthly envelopes from the post office are sitting here and I'm so excited, yet scared to get started. I'm so sitting on the fence about whether to do it all hand-pieced or those envelopes remain opened but nothing removed from them. :)

I ordered the Dear Jane software package and while I'm waiting for that to arrive I hope to decide how to piece it and get started on my first block.

Lots of Web sites discuss this quilt, my favorites are:

That Quilt
Dear Jane
Veronique's Dear Jane

So, be looking for photos as I work on my Rainbow Jane!

Update: I've added photos of the unopened plastic bags from October, November, December and January as Kathy suggested. See I've put off the stitching method for a few months!!!!


  1. LOve it! Look forward to seeing your blocks photos. Show us how the packages look when you receive them. If I were you, I'd try a few by hand and then a few by machine and see which I prefer.

  2. Great suggestion, Kathy, thanks! I've added the months that go untouched so far...I just get so excited and then hit a stumbling block and just start new stuff. Think I need help?

  3. You are so brave!! I don't have the patience for two year project, I really admire you.

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

A New Project
