My Jane K-3, K-12, and My CW Legacies

Encouraging words of the day:

Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. ~ 1 Peter 4:8, NLT

Well, I entered a gazillion giveaways in Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Days and did not win anything so I may as well sew.  That’s exactly what I’ve been doing.  Jeannie from
"The Learning Curve" organized a “Civil War Quilt” quilt-along.  She's done a terrific job organizing us and collecting free materials for us.  She was able to get a copy of the book " Civil War Legacies" by Carol Hopkins for each of the 12 people participating in exchange for us doing a review of the book.

Each of us is making a block from a different quilt.  These blocks will be put together and made into one quilt called the "Gratitude Quilt" and then sent to the generous person who donated the books to us.  This is my Gratitude Block:
I’ve written more about this on another page.  Please see tabs above for “Civil War Quilt-Along 2012.”
A couple more “My Jane” blocks completed.  K-3 looks kind of crooked in the photo.  I freaked out and checked my block and it is NOT crooked.  The crazy photographer (me) messed the photo up some how.
And K-12 looks perfect to me.  I’m happy with both blocks for once.
That is all.

I love the idea of the Gratitude quilt What a lovely idea. Love your Jane blocks, as always. When did you start your quilt?

I, too, think the Gratitude quiltt is a lovely idea. Both of your blocks are super. You are making great progress.

Your gratitude block is lovely and your two DJ bloks look perfect. Sorry you didn't win any of the giveaways, but the book you received for the quiltalong looks really interesting.
