Dear Jane, it's been awhile...

Yes, I found my Dear Jane software, my Dear Jane rulers, and even my Dear Jane book - signed by author Brenda Papadakis.

One of my goals for this month is to complete at least 2 DJ blocks monthly.  I'll be consulting another website "That Quilt" for advice on how to best approach some of the tricky piecing in these tiny 4.5" blocks.  And block #1 for January:

F8 - Church Window - 36 pieces


  1. Good luck! It is such a beautiful quilt, but I'll be honest - it intimidates the heck out of me!

  2. Wow, I need to get back at mine too! Jake goes back to school tomorrow, but our Hearts and Hands meeting is tomorrow and we're sewing all morning for chemo quilts and then meeting in the afternoon. Then we're going out for dinner for our Christmas party for the Elgin Piecemakers!! So, that shoots tomorrow already LOL. Hope to take some time to plan and set goals this week. DJ will be one of them as well as my Indian Orange Peel. I have a bit of sewing to do on the Easy Street mystery from Bonnie Hunter which I enjoyed immensely...lots of sewing, so hope to get that top together this week. Maybe I should post that on my blog and you all can keep me accountable LOL. Miss you! If you need to take more vacation, take a Thursday and Friday off on the 4th Thursday or the month and visit the guild!!! I think the meeting's at my house January 24th...come and surprise the girls! Wouldn't that be fun?

    1. That would be fun! I wish I had done the Easy Street mystery - I'm in love with the reveal. I saw one on facebook that was pink and yellow - gorgeous!
