A busy week of Jane blocks

I'm doing my best to stay on schedule with my Jane blocks.
July has been a busy month, but luckily I've managed to keep up.
The most challenging block of the week was C7 Megan's Mountain Laurel.
Those little inset triangle rows were made of such teeny pieces!

My favorite block of the week was definately F4 Old Windmill.
I love this cheerful DOUBLE PINK fabric!
Bubblegum pink is what my inner child sees this color as (grin)
And with the finish of these 6 blocks - I've also completed Row C - my 3rd row so far! (hooray)

every Quilt tells a story...


  1. Doreen ...I love your new blocks ..I am so waiting for the day your dear Jane quilt is completed ..I just can't wait !!!

    Hugs and Blessings ...Sara

  2. Well, I bow down to your keeping on schedule. I see I am going to have to ask you for advice when it comes to doing some of the more difficult blocks since I took the easy way out and made easy blocks first. Good for you. They are all turing out so beautiful.

  3. Excellent work Doreen, I think that its nice to celebrate making a difficult block by making an easy one.

  4. Hi Doreen...Wow! Another wonderful. The squares are lovely...the C7 block looks like it was a pain...challenging but a lot of work!
    Have a wonderful week!
    Hugs, Nancy

  7. Ohhhhhh, what a yummy looking blocks! Looks better than my dinner tonight!!

  8. Another beautiful set of blocks, way to go!!!

  9. Doreen, these are exquisite. I can only imagine the effort that went into the Megan's Mountain Laurel block. I was curious as to when you started sewing and when you became involved in quilting. Obviously, you are highly skilled. Is this something you've been doing your whole life? I am only a bare beginner sewer, but when I finish my degree, I want to learn to sew better. I'd love to be able to sew clothes for my kids (at a minimum)!
    PS. That bubblegum pink just made me smile!

  10. Beautiful, Doreen! Yup, that C7 was a little, well, you know what!!! LOL! Yours is just gorgeous!!! All the best!
