Last night was also the first Friday Night Sew In of 2013 and I spent it with Jane.
I made two blocks: D6: Challenge - it was anything but a challenge - beautifully easy foundation piecing! I used an Art Gallery fabric with quite a large scale print for that huge area in the middle.
And C7: Megan's Mountain Laurel. Now, I like fiddly, but I may have found my limit - look how small one of the foundation pieced sections was - that's on the inch markings on my cutting mat!
Inevitably with pieces so small, my finished block isn't perfect, some of the lines are wobbly, some of the points don't meet etc. But I am thrilled with the results and I AM NOT redoing this block! The fabric is from Noteworthy by Sweetwater.
In the original quilt, the diamonds in the corners were appliqued - I decided to foundation piece those as well.
And why pink? Well, Angel over at So Scrappy is having a pink month, and she's been working on her pink Rainbow Jane blocks so I'm linking up with her Scrap Happy Saturday too!
