You know what you haven't seen from me in some time? A Dear Jane block. I'm just loving seeing the DJ's created around Blogland, and thought it was high time I made another block of my own. I'm not thrilled with the accuracy of this block, but in the words of Brenda Papadakis, 'finished is better than perfect'. I like her thinking :-)
This block is L11 - Caitlin's Rose. I've modified it from the line drawing in my book to look more like the block photographed in the book. My copy is a very early one, and it's possible that later print runs may have been corrected.
And here is some fabric I picked up on Thursday morning at Spotlight. After my bargain of the weekend, I decided to venture back and see what I could find.
The piggy fabric in the centre caught my eye at $1.50 per metre, and since I'm hankering to make some 'Little Quilts of Love', I thought it could be used for backs. The purple fabric on the left at $2.50 a metre could also become the back of the 'Purple Stars' quilt, and the green fabric on the left also at $2.50 per metre was a 'justin' fabric. You know, I've said it before - just in case.
Wouldn't have killed me to have run the iron over the fabric in the middle - hope it flattens out a little in the closet.
That's it from me for now ... I'll check back in soon x o x
