I would love to hear from anyone who is currently working on a Dear Jane quilt or if you have completed one. I am just starting one. Any advice? I am hand piecing. Thanks.
Today was another pretty good quilty day. I finished my June Hello Sun BOM. Yep, another WIP, DONE. Now, I can't wait to see what the block is for July. I wonder what the finishing will be?
I finished cutting my background squares and some batting for my Halloween Crazy Quilt.
I worked on cutting my fabric for my July doll quilt. And, that is going very well. I'm hoping to get a jump on starting to piece my little DQ before the end of the month of June.

If any of you are Excel experts I'd like to be able to make each block enlarge as I click on it. The blocks are D6 & D7. Next is D8 which has 4 small diamonds and 4 small leaves (melon seeds) that will all be appliqued but I'm determined to do another block on the big B/W that I'm hand appliqueing. Picture

Thanks for looking,

So I finished working on my block today. Seeing we are at the half way point I decided I would also post a picture of all my six blocks together. Wow only six more blocks togo.. As always once I post my block I dont want to hurry life along, but Im always looking forward to the beginning of the next month to see what new block is posted and what challenges it can bring.

Was a pretty good quilty day. I finished my June Doll Quilt. Thats right, done! Quilted, done! Binding, done! Label, done! So, now when I go to the post office this week I will be mailing my doll quilt and needlebook.
And, I decided what I want to do for my July doll quilt. I'm pretty sure...positive actually...that I'm going to play with my NEW ish twister tool. And, of course, Red/White/Blue. So, I'm going to check my scrap bin first. But, I have lots of Patriot fabric to use.
Ok so it is not pressed and it's not perfect, BUTTTTTT it is my first time using a machine and quilting so what more could a lady ask for. I DID IT.
