More Modern Jane blocks
Here is a grouping of some of the Jane blocks I made for class using Modern fabrics. (contemporary prints with a few batiks mixed in) I'm still working on my Civil War Jane and will continue sharing the Jane blocks for that quilt here on my blog too. The Club that I'm teaching began last month - we will be making 13 blocks a month for 13 months PLUS the triangle blocks at a rate of 1 pieced triangle unit per week.
I'm going to start a separate blog for this Modern Jane quilt next week. For those that wish to follow along - it will be a 13 month journey thru the completion of this Modern Jane quilt. I'll be sharing personal strategies, tips & tricks that I've used and/or discovered in simplifying the order and assembly process of many of the blocks I've made.
Here are my first 2 triangle blocks for this quilt as well:

I've been a passionate quilter for 30+ years.
I love all aspects of quilting and find great joy in teaching and in learning from other Quilters. I am especially fond of sewing small scale quilt blocks and also enjoy applique'.
