I couldn't resist making some more Dear Jane squares. The four on the left I downsized from EQ6 patterns..I have 44 of them printed out and just waiting to be pieced or appliqued. That will make a total of 162 patterns accumulated. I calculated that in order to make an approximately 90 by 90 quilt(I do like them to be square and that size fits our beds the best)..I will need 196. That way I will put together 14 x 14 with one inch sashing and cornerstones plus a 6 or 5 inch border so that I can do some appliqueing of vines and flowers. At least that is the plan now....it is always subject to change.
I was in contact with a friend from the town we were living in last year and she is doing a Dear Jane as well...it was something she and I talked about doing for a while. It's motivating when you have a sewing buddy urging you on...keeps you working along.
As you can see I have two paper pieced squares done..it's still my least favourite thing to do. I went over the patterns again and decided instead of regimenting myself to making them in numerical order I will put the pp'd squares together and choose one in between the other patterns..maybe then I won't get too frustrated. Either way, It's going to take a while to finish.
