A Jane Weekend

I spend Saturday and Sunday morning working on my Rainbow Jane blocks. I have 2 left in this batch which I hope I can get done before the next set comes in.









This was last week's Traditional Jane block. I don't like how I can see through the bottom fabric so I may redo that portion and use a pieces of muslin to make it thicker.

I was able to finish this little thing during the week on my lunch hour.

My goodness! A very productive Jane weekend, indeed! Your blocks are looking amazing! I'm in love with Rainbow Jane.

Something to consider for Traditional Jane-- you might just try trimming out the background behind the poof. That's what I do. It reduces bulk and it helps circumvent that show-through issue.

Yvette your blocks look excellent.
My DJ went on vacation and has not returned. I think she met someone.

More beautiful finishes! You are amazingly quick on those blocks! Those little things take me forever! I actually sat down last night and started looking through my DJ, NI and CWD blocks.

Yvette, you need to slow down! LOL At this rate I feel burn out coming on! I think you should fly down to AR for a week and come putter in the garden with me :)

The blocks are beautiful. You have such patience!

Oh I like the bright colors in your Jane blocks. What a neat interpretation.

Wow those blocks blow me away, talk about patience! Beautiful work,Yvette, can't wait to see the finished quilt.There is something to be said for the solid fabrics.
I recently quilted a vintage Missouri Daisy that had gathered petals, too much handwork for me!
