"Dear Jane" really started.
Encouraging words of the day:
And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. ~ Colossians 3:15, NLT
I started my “Dear Jane” quilt. I ordered the software and it has arrived but I think I need constant access to the photos instead of opening up my software each time I need to see the picture, so I ordered the book also. I’m still waiting for the book to arrive. In the meantime, I have made two blocks.
I’ve heard from a few people who have a “Dear Jane” in progress or would like to start one. I love to hear from you and get your input.
Here's the finished baby quilt I’ve been working on for my neighbor. This was done using the cool “Lil Twister” tool I bought recently. The cutting was the most time consuming. I like the way it turned out but I probably won’t be making very large quilts with this since it does take so much time to cut each individual square. Also, and I don’t know how this happened, when I sewed the border strips on, they stretched more than the blocks so they look kind of “ruffley.” I thought that looked rather nice since it’s a baby quilt and I liked the ruffle effect so I didn’t try to fix that.
I’m almost finished with the additions to my “Dresden Plate” quilt. I’m working on pillow shams to match so that I can use it as a bedspread.
"1 Choice 4 Quilting" is having a fantastic giveaway consisting of fabric yardage, fabric bundles, a quilt kit, jewelry, cosmetics and creams. - ends May 29th.
That is all.
