A True Nightmare, My Jane L-10
Encouraging Words of the Day –
Back in December I won the giveaway that "Leona's Quilting Adventure" had for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. For some reason, I had the winnings mailed to our ranch address and just now got them at the post office here. There were two winners of which I was the second and won a surprise package consisting of 4 fat quarters 2 extra cuts of my favorite turquoise color. All that plus thread, pins, and a notepad. Thanks so much.
I sewed on four “My Jane” blocks while we were driving to the ranch. I completed one block completely and worked on 3 others doing some appliqué.. I’m posting the one I completed which is L-10. It was “pretty much” a nightmare trying to get this block done. I paper-pieced some of it, then appliquéd those little-bitty triangles on. They came out crooked but it was a big accomplishment just getting them sewed on so that’s that. Then it seems like I ran out of fabric (see top of block) so I just sewed on a little strip of white to make the block the size it needs to be. I don’t know why that happened. I’m just glad I’m done with L-10. Here goes:
Even the photo didn't come out good for this block :(
