Two finished blocks
Recently I decided to start two new quilts, Dear Jane and a calendar quilt. Both are gigantic projects but since I don't have deadlines for completion of either of them I was okay with starting them at the same time. The Dear Jane block was my first attempt with paper piecing and I think that I like that technique. From this block, I realized that I enjoy working with small pieces of fabric rather than cutting into yards of fabric. The calendar quilt block was a challenge from beginning to end. I think that I sewed every seam at least twice before they met up. The finished product should draw attention to that part of the quilt.
