When I first moved to the States from Germany 5 1/2 years ago I didn't have my sewing machine or sewing things, of course. It was going to take months for them to get here. So, I had the bright idea to hand piece the Dear Jane quilt. These are the blocks I finished.
I came across the Dear Baby Jane blog and decided that I really must get this quilt going again, pulled out the blocks I had made and measured them and realized that they are all different sizes (they are supposed to be 5 inches). So...I will start over. And I think I will put these blocks on the back as a reminder of that time in my life. I am SO ashamed that I have let it go this long. But then again, I have UFO's that are older.... :o)
These original blocks have unbleached muslin as the background but I think I will use Kona cotton instead.
