Dear Jane and New Project

Here are 2 more blocks for my Dear Jane. But tonight I got a really good idea on a fabric I have in my stash that I think I want to use for the one below. I think I may remake that one just to use this other fabric! At least it was an easy block!

And I"ve started a new quilt. I"ve wanted to make this quilt since last spring when I saw it at the Chicago Quilt Festival. When it showed up on the cover of Quilters Newsletter Jan/Feb 2010 issue I knew I had to do it. Then I saw Andrea's first block and new it was time! Here is block one! I won't be doing this fast, I"ll do a block now and then. No hurry.

I like the purple background fabric with the leaves. Don't think I have seen that before.

That quilt made an impression on me, too -- I took a photo at the quilt show and recognized it when it was on the QNM cover. It's going to be great!

I love your block #1 for your new quilt. It's such an amazing quilt - I love the flying geese. It tempts me everytime I walk past the magazines at the grocery store :0)
