My 50th Jane block - Gold Level!

Last week I completed my 50th Jane block HOORAY!
The block is E13 titled Moth in a Web.
The beautiful CWR fabric I used for this block was given to me as a gift from Sheryl of Temecula Quilt Co. I thought the bold Barn Red color was a perfect choice to use for my 50th and "Golden" block!

D2 titled Mouse in the Mirror is another special block that I completed.
The pattern made me think of my dear friend Sue and the wonderful time we've been having - working on identical quilts together. (soon to be finished) The "mouse" brown fabric I used was a gift from her for my Jane quilt as well.

These are the 4 blocks that I completed for the week.

every Quilt tells a story....


  1. Congratulations Doreen on your 50th Gold block YEAHHH! Just beautiful ! Just look at all 4 of those blocks , what a wonderful accomplishment this week. I am SO proud of you !

  2. Well, that is certainly something to celebrate. Congrats to your determination and your beautiful work.

  3. Congratulations Doreen, well done. The blocks look lovely, the fabrics kind of jump out at you.

  4. Congratulations on your 50th block Doreen!!
    They are so pretty and vibrant...
    A little story behind the fabric from Sheryl at Temecula...I was talking to her a few weeks back because I wanted to know if they had the Baltimore Halloween and Christmas...she didn't, but she told me where to get them. I mentioned you and how you love the shop. She said she was about to send out a package to you. I told her you were doing the Dear Jane and that some of us had sent her fabric...she said that maybe she could find something to include...I told her that you would be so happy to get an extra piece...

    Sorry the post is long, but I thought you might like to know..
    Hope you have a great week!
    Hugs, Nancy

    All the best to you.
