A little stitching ...

Of late I have managed to get just a little of my own stitching done. Just enough to feel like my life is still my own :-)

On Tuesday evening I put a few blocks of my Carolina Crossroads quilt together. I had planned to put sashing strips between the blocks, but I changed my mind in the end. I'm not even sure that I will add borders to the quilt, but I'm a LONG way off making any decisions like that.

And in almost astounding news, today I thought it'd be fun to put a Dear Jane block together. This is L13 - Harvest Moon. Quite a fun block - a little piecing and a little applique. Linda recently sent me some lovely 30's prints (thank you Linda!) and I think they've inspired me to look at my 30's Jane again.

Best get back to work, I'll check back in soon. x o x

Your Carolina Crossroads is looking lovely. Very nice indeed. I love 30's fabrics. I have yet to venture into any Dear Jane quilting.

Your DJ block is perfect - wonderful piecing work. I have seen that Carolina's Crossroads quilt on so many blogs and each is just beautiful!

Your block makes me want to get out my DJ stuff and start back on it. I wish I had never set it aside!

Looks like you've done a lot of great stitching Tazzie. The Carolina Crossroads and the Jane both look great.
