Tuesday quilt block

It's Tuesday and time for an update on what I have been doing.
Wouldn't you know - more blocks in the style of Jane Stickle, in indigo and white.


(It's indigo, not black fabric.) This is A5 or Cathie's Campfire.  I've done so many of these blocks, more than once, that I even know their names without looking them up!

And so it begins (again)

Well I just can't help myself.
I have started a new project in the style of Jane Stickle, this time in indigo blue fabrics and white.
May I remind my readers that I have a Jane project with Civil War reproduction fabrics, still in progress.  And a Jane project for my daughter, in reproduction double pink fabrics and white, with about 100 blocks done.

But I was reading a book about classic antique indigo and white quilts and I was inspired.  So it begins:


With some simple blocks.  On Facebook, there is a Jane group starting a run through the blocks in order, one a week, starting with A1.  So I had to play some catch up.


A1 and A2.  The fabric appears black but is really a dark indigo.

I hope to find a place to link up - and share with the world my Jane obsession!

Jelly roll quilt in reproduction fabrics

It's tuesday so time to share something of what I am doing!

I finished this quilt top in August, just haven't had time to share it here.


I cut my own 2.5 inch strips, width of fabric (some shorter) and followed directions I found on the web.  (see my previous post).
All 30's reproduction fabric.
I am unsure if I will add a border or not.  I will eventually quilt this up myself on my regular sewing machine.

Jelly roll top - all done

It is done! I purchased more fabric, backing and a batt and quilted in straight lines on my own sewing machine to get this done.  Machined the binding onto the back, turned to the front and machine sewed the binding down.  Black thread on black fabric - time to pay close attention to my sewing!


It's hard to see the border fabric except at the bottom of the picture.  I used a black fabric with plenty of Christmas ornaments printed on it.  This quilt will be part of our Christmas decor at chez Viridian - tossed over the back of the couch most likely.

I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River as I do most weeks I have projects to share. Follow the link to pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects.
