Come on. You guessed it. You just knew. I've spent 10 years wanting to make a Dear Jane quilt and never have. Sure I started once and made 5 blocks and thought they looked crummy - so put them away and didn't touch it again. I even broke down twice and made mini Dear Janes with only a few blocks. I hemmed and hawed. I just couldn't bring myself to buy 12 yards of background fabric. I found excuse after excuse.
Well I did it. January 31st - my first Dear Jane block is done. Sure it is only a 9 patch, but it is a start! And I am all organized now with binder and software to make it happen. And the background fabric. Well I decided nope, not happening. I'm making it scrappy. I'll make most of my blocks with shirtings. when I get closer to having it done I"ll find a fabric for the thin sashing strips. I'm using my stash. Even have my second block prepped for applique and the third is in my head!
Yup, it was bound to happen sometime. It's not like I ever quilt or make anything else - right?
