Sunflower days

This sunflower was grown from seed by my daughter. So cheerful!
I'm blogging now b/c school is starting soon and I won't have much time in a few weeks!!

Dear Jane Hall of Shame

This is Crooked Creek, a block in row K. I don't know what happened, really I don't.

The next one is L-12. Not shameful but a cop-out. There should be tiny tiny appliqued triangles near the corners, not pieced ones.

Mysterious fabric

Has this ever happened to you?
I was digging through my stash, looking for reproduction fabrics, when this fabric popped out. It is a series of strips of different fabrics, all repros just perfect for my Dear Jane quilt. The thing is - I don't remember it at all! I don't remember buying it, or when! Maybe it entered my stash through a warp in the space-time continuum.

Brute force applique: results

Well, the results are in, and for some Jane blocks, this method works well and my frustration level is waaaay down. top photo shows results. Next photos show how I prep by basting right through the freezer paper, then the final product, with a pink block prepped and pinned and ready to go.

Nature photos

These are some photos taken at a nearby nature center. I secretly wish I were an excellent photographer, able to sell my photos for $. Ha. But in the winter these images will be very welcome.
