I have been working on some more of my Dear Jane blocks.  I have some real doozies left to do.  A couple of these are just time consuming.  But that circle one!  I am rather proud of myself for just accomplishing it!

It is actually made of two pinwheels blocks, the circle appliqued onto the other one.  The hard part for me was the reverse applique of the background frame!  I just haven’t done any…..but I have more blocks that need it.

It it doesn't turn out like you imagine, doesn't do the blue couch justice, I know of a brown couch that it would look lovely on.

Jo, that's a good try, but I think that DD will grab this red and neutral quilt and you won't stand a chance.

I spent years just using "thread bunnies" when I sewed off the end of a seam but then I eventually realized that if I planned ahead I could make those scrappy things instead. And then I found that there were merchants on who sold bundles of assorted 2.5 inch squares in all kinds of odd fabric colors and patterns .....

such a cute pattern.  Do you have a special wall to hang it?

that is going to be georgeous!

On a side not I think you really need to stop with the term "forever project" as that implies years not months in progress :)

as the guy says in Princess Bride, "I don't think that means what you think it does".  (though there the reference is to "inconceivable")

good for you Judy.  You've got your quilting zen back.

Well I've been quilting.  Figured since I needed to quilt the marine t-shirt quilt, I might as well quilt the two large throws I had done earlier this year.  So I've got 3 quilts quilted and now to do the binding.  I decided I really needed to give my hands a rest from the hand quilting.  Though machine quilting is a bit hard on my back (bad posture).

I've enlarged it to be a twin sized quilt, so ... no wall needed.  :-)
