Today I managed to finish 2 new Dear baby Jane blocks. The first is D-6 Challenge. I freezer paper pieced this one and it went smoothly.
The next one I did is D-13 Field of Dreams. I rotary cut and then pieced this block. I am hoping to get some more done tonight and try and get a few of the ones that the Blog group are doing done.
I also wanted to share the fabrics I have so far chosen to use in my Butterfly Garden quilt that Stef and I are doing together. I still have to pick out a few solids for the applique and maybe add a little more yellow to the mix to even it out but so far I think I will use the lavender solid foe the main butterflies- then to decide my other appliques. The floral in the middle is the main fabric I chose (from Dandelion Girl) and matched the rest to it. Some of the fabrics are actually from my stash! When I first started quilting I loved MODA but especially Robyn Pandolph’s fabrics and collected quite a stash of her fabrics! I decided it was time to stop saving them and start using them! It has been fun discovering my tastes and incorporating them into my latest project’s!
I am continuing to work on my Home Sweet Home quilt and I hope to finish the stitchery’s in the next few days and quilt it on the weekend. Still have not decided if I am machine or hand quilting it yet….Hmmmm.
Well off to stain some shelves!
I love all of the colors that you have chosen! My favorite is the large floral print from Dandelion Girl! I think that you should add a few more yellow fabrics and maybe one or two green fabrics! I can’t wait to start!
I *sigh* everytime I see your beautiful projects! Your Dear Jane blocks are beautiful and the fabs for your Butterfly Garden remind me of a lovely English garden. Ohhhh–almost forgot! Your header is so wonderful, too!
Gorgeous fabrics – I look forward to seeing the beautiful quilt you will make from them.
