Some of you may have noticed the new button added to my sidebar last week. I've decided to link up with Kim for Scrap Basket Sundays.
Hard to tell in the picture above, but the background of this star block has a very pretty yet subtle pattern to it.
Another new project???? Well, yes and no. I am using up all of the scraps left over from my Civil War Dear Jane blocks to make these star blocks. Many of the fabrics for this quilt (still in progress) are extremely precious to me. They were given to me by special friends, most of whom sent fabric, emotional support and love while I was dealing with the toughest part of my cancer recovery a few years ago.
I have a couple more blocks prepped for English Paper piecing. Once I finish these I think I'm going to switch to traditional hand piecing with freezer paper templates. Same cutting process but less basting involved.
And now that I've finished the Modern Dear Jane that I created for teaching, I'm ready to get back to my special Dear Jane quilt.
