Friday Night Sew-In

Well I did do 2 blocks had hope to do better but it better than nothing, the blocks are ones I am doing for the Dear Jane quilt but with a big difference they are not tiny these will be a finish of 9 inches I am doing 18 different blocks but 2 of each I will be keeping one set & the other set will go to my friend in the USA she will be doing the same so we have 36 blocks in total when finished, my friend Lynnette was kind enough to give me the fabric for my birthday 18 months ago & we still not finished them lol we are using P&B Textiles Moroccan Spice range we have 3 colours most of the blocks will be in the 2 you see with some using a 3rd colour, this colour will also be used for sashing or border will know more when I come to that.
If you look at the blocks they are not strictly the same I done them alternative but didn't realise until I was taking the photo that they are not quite the same I don't think it matters as they will be in different quilts.
I hope that I can work on more blocks before next Friday's Sew-In so I can be working on some projects I really need to do but I guess I have to see how I get along this coming week.

Have fun with your Dear Jane blocks. They're really fun to do, but I haven't seen any that are larger than 5" square. I can't wait to see all of yours.

Funny how sometimes we can see something wrong in a photo, but not when we are making the block isn't it? It happened to me last week, so I know.

The Friday Night Sew In was fun. I am still working on my project and that is just fine. relaxing and enjoying the process. I can hardly wait to see the rest of the quilt you are making. What a nice idea to share with a friend.
