Let me say at this point, that some of the pieces are TINY. And the first task is to take the bag marked A1-A6 and work out which piece is for which block. My husband thought I was mad!
And then I started sewing. I am glue basting again, and there are a lot of pieces where the seam allowance is far bigger than the piece itself! The basting is going very smoothly, except on the sashing strips, where things like to move and unglue!
It took me longer than a month to get all 13 blocks stitched up and sashed, so chances are I'll fall behind. But I don't want to skip the sashing step otherwise I'll never finish the quilt if I have to do all of this at the end! I'm also making a conscious effort to remove the papers once a block is fully sashed - another step that could be hell if I leave it to the end!
I'm planning on a rainbow Dear Jane with the print fabrics used only in one block. To keep me on the straight and narrow I'm creating a little chart with a 12 piece of each fabric in it's position. At the end of the project I'll add black satin stitch on all the joins and have a nice little mini Dear Jane!
Month two is sorted and the fabrics have been picked - you can have a sneak peak at my fabric choices in the photo above. I can't promise a monthly update here, but eventually I WILL have a finished Dear Jane eventually.
