"My Jane" Block G-7

Encouraging words of the day:

Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray. ~Mark 1:35, NLT

Jesus took time to pray.  Finding time to pray is not easy, but prayer is the vital link between us and God. Like Jesus, we must break away from others to talk with God, even if we have to get up very early in the morning to do it!

Our grandson’s parents are back from their trip.  Now we’re back to being 100% grandparents while Andy’s parents take over discipline.  Yay!  We’ll be in California two more days spoiling our grandson.

So saying, here is the next block I’ve completed for “My Jane.”
This block looks easy enough and that may be what caused me so many problems.  I kept getting the colored fabric on the strips running through the circle in the wrong place.  Two of them are STILL in the wrong place but I’m going with it.  I keep unsewing and then sewing them back in the wrong place again.  I finally decided to leave it as it is now.  I did say I was making this Dear Jane project into “My Jane,” right?

It’s  "One-Flower Wednesday" and here is my flower.  I'm going for a 4th of July theme.

Giveaways I've run into:
Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting is having her first giveaway.   Cheryl is giving away An OLFA Circle Rotary Cutter (18mm) and the product demo disc that goes with it, a pattern, 'Bundle of 12 - Beach Balls' by Amelie Scott Designs, and a pattern, 'Gifts All Around' by Aarol Penny Pattenden.  Cheryl will select a winner on Tuesday evening, July 5.

Jay Bird Quilts is having a sponsored giveaway.  You could win a full collection of fat quarters of Outside Oslo by Jessica Jones from Pink Chalk.  This giveaway ends Wednesday, June 22, at 10:00 pm EST.

That is all.

I like the "My Jane" block the way you created it :) A patriotic flower is perfect for the upcoming holiday!

I didn't even notice the little G-7 problem, but it sure does make the perfect 'My Jane' block! And, wonderful 4th of July flower.

I love the block and the hexie! Very striking contrast in the colors you put together.

Brave woman to do a DJane. I started Sylvia's Bridal Sampler and it's been ages since I've done a block.
Love your hexie. Thank you for welcoming me into the group.

No one would have notice if you hadn't said about your Dear Jane, it is very nice. Nice bright hexie too.
