Dear Jane

I've managed another 6 blocks of my Dear Jane quilt. I love making the 4 1/2" blocks for this quilt, but they are very fiddly and take a bit of time (some more than others!)
A bit of paper piecing and needle turn in these ones.

I now have a total of 20 blocks... I have soooo many more to make. Hopefully I will be able to put some time aside and make more of these each month???

I have started another BOM!! This one is another Bunny Tales one, called "Snowbound". I wasn't going to start another quilt - but, well I love snowmen - I couldn't resist.
As you can see in the photo I had loads of help from Squeaky!!!

" All this sewing has just worn me out!!"

Hope you all have a great weekend!
