    I am using CW fabrics and wanted each block to be pink, brown and cream (not just neutral but cream). I also didn't want to repeat fabrics. This made things challenging when selecting fabrics for each block, not only getting the right contrast but having enough creams as they are hard to come by.
    Some of my blocks were wonkier than I could stand. Each time I looked at them I would tell myself that I could live with it, but I just couldn't do it.
    So...I went through all of my blocks, saved some and plan to use the others in different projects.
    I decided to use Kona snow for most of my "white" areas and will use the creams when I feel like it.
    Each block will have pink and brown which may be in the same fabric.
    If it's wonky, fix or redo it until I can tolerate it. We are the hardest on ourselves right?
    And now, I can tolerate my Jane again. Whew.
    So behind, but still moving forward. New for this week:
    A3 - Hunter's Moon (redo)
    A8 - Florence Nightingale (redo)

    Fraew ... I love your new blocks and those colours are so great!
    A hug!

I will finish the whole quilt with a piece of fleece, IF & WHEN I actually reach that point. I live in North Dakota, with VERY cold winters, and so I back all of my quilts with fleece. And then I will just do a simple SID by the sashing. I will not be doing the scallops on the edge. I am attaching a picture of what some of the blocks look like put together. I used the white that is my background and found some black with gold beading going through it, for the cornerstones, keeping in mind that this is a GLITZY JANE. Hope that I have answered your question.
    Spartan Quilter ... your blocks look so great together! Congrats!
    A hug!

    Hello ladies!
    I hope that all are very good!
    As you will have already noticed, last week I could not comply with my blocks.
    Just last night I finished with the 8 week!
    With B-11 two days I was, it took me to find you in the back, but it was pretty good.
    I think that the 11 will be my karma! Hahaha!
    Well, I leave the pictures of my blocks, I hope they are to your liking!
    I still have not seen messages from Linda (TymeToShine)... hope that she is well!
    A big hug to all!

    Gus, I'd be interested in a list of all the great tuts you've made. I kept meaning to write the post# in my DJ book I still will, so I have it. And thanks for your encouragement.

    Finally found the fabric I wanted for this block. It's an Ellie Sienkievich (butchered the spelling, I'm sure).

    Bookworm and DottyD-Welcome back, and not to worry about being behind. Beautiful blocks. _We all go there at one time or another. I am now, but should be able to catch up shortly. Have been working 3 or 4 days a week, but got word today, that 2 people have been hired, so after getting them trained in, work for me will return to 2 days a week. Yah, more time to sew. And of course, other quilts to work on, also. I think I have about 3 in progress right now.

    Have a safe Memorial Day weekend, as we all give thanks to those who have served our country and given their all, and our loved ones who have gone on before us.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Everyone is doing such a great job. Spartan quilter, I just finished 2 quilts and now I have 3 in progress; DJ, AOTH, and a centennial quilt for my church. My goal is to return to DJ next week. This board keeps me inspired so I don't give up.

    Thanks Dotty!

    I did do my own b13 - I do love hexagons, and since I'm using English Paper Piecing (epp)
    I wanted at least some hex representation in the quilt.

    These hexies are .5cm per side (less than 1/4") My finished block size is 6cm (2.4").

    Today's update. One more block then I'm all caught up. I really love everyone's work.

    I also can't thank the board members who sent me blues enough. Having so many blue scraps is really helping to make each of my blocks look great.
