Tuesday Quilt block February 4

And time to get started again!  There is only so much bordering of blocks and assembling into a whole that one can take.  I guess some quilters are just set to make UFO's (un-finished objects.)  And making individual Dear Jane blocks is like eating potato chips - so hard to stop with just one.

So, the story.  I uncovered a set of 18 blocks that were part of an exchange.  Each of us made 6 copies of a block, and sent them out, and received 6 different blocks from other quilters.  I joined 3 groups, it seems. This exchange was from several years ago so it is hard to remember the details.  Anyhow, seeing the blocks again, all in bright and pretty 30's reproduction fabrics, was inspirational.  Here is the start of a project, 18 blocks, why not continue?  So this past Superbowl weekend I did.  And why not start at the beginning, Top left of Jane's quilt, A-1, Pinwheel Gone Awry:

And so many quilter falls off the path to finishing their main quilt project of the year, and is off making 4.5 inch blocks, again.

I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River and Quilt Story as I do most weeks I have blocks to share. Both blog hops have of pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects. I am also joining Work in Progress Wednesday - some colorful and interesting projects there!

What a nice block. Yes, it's hard not to start things. Jane can be intimidating for many - all those pieces. If you want to meet others on the journey, check out Janiacs Unite. Thanks for sharing.

That is a very fun little block! Perfect for those 30's fabrics.
