dear jane rejigged


For those regular readers of my blog you will know that I am slowly working on a dear jane quilt - we I DID have three rows joined together but I wasnt happy with them.
BUT
I looked at Bonnie Hunters website www.quiltville.com and saw her storm at sea setting - and fell in love with it
sooooooooooo
lots of unpicking and rejigging and I have two rows back together - not as wide as last time - I am going to make a "smaller" jane - 8 x 8

I love that setting. Your blocks look wonderful and I'm sure you'll be pleased this time.

Whew, Di - what a busy day you've had getting your blog up to date! I tend to do the same thing from time to time and post several days of news at once, only I go into options at the bottom of the posting template and alter the date so my posts slot in as if I had written them on the day I meant to LOL. Some would call it cheating LOL. I really love the way you have set your Dear Jane - it has movement and life! Keep it up! Love, Di J

The storm at sea setting is just gorgeous. My husband love sailing and I keep promising him a storm at sea quilt, maybe I could do some dear jane blocks in all blue greens with that sashing. I will have to check out the website with the instructions on.
