I’m still quietly getting on with Jane although she has rather been pushed to one side as I’ve branched out and started making other bits and pieces.
I have a brand new great nephew and so I wanted to make him a little cot quilt. As his granny is also a quilter I decided on making something quite simple and quick leaving it for Granny to make the ‘special’ quilt!
I had some beautifully soft flannel in baby blues in my stash which just called out for a simple pattern. I’ve backed it with super soft fleece and quilted it in straight lines. It will be cosy and cuddly and easy to wash – an essential for baby quilts!
Here are a few of the Dear Jane blocks I’ve been busy with,
K12 Doris’s Dilemma – EPP. This one is a bit of a dilemma as I made it using the pattern in the book only to realise afterwards that the blue shape in the middle of the design is a square in the actual quilt! I may redo this, I may not – but I was a little cross that the book wasn’t accurate.
L11 Caitlin’s Rose – foundation pieced. You can just see where I had to unpick a seam and redo it, thankfully those little holes do close up when I dampen the fabric 🙂
L3 Reflection’s Abound – Foundation pieced
B2 Sweet Tater Pie – pieced and appliqué.
C5 Eye of the Cyclone – pieced, appliqué and reverse appliqué.
E5 Rising Sun – foundation and appliqué. I do like this one, I wonder what a quilt of these blocks would look like? Hmmmm!
Have a great week end.
Until next time,
