Jane Stickle...... my hero!!

I had my Dear Jane moment, this morning! I was making block J6, when I sat and thought for a moment!

Jane Stickle had no rotary cutter, no printed instructions, no sewing machine!

This block is 4.5" in her quilt, it is hand sewn and has 25 pieces in it!

Wow, what talent and Patience she must of had!

A Dr Seuss Christmas!

For my three (3) nieces Christmas present I have made them Dr Seuss Library Bag. The front panel is a stitchery I drawn up for the boys Dr Seuss books, then brought some great Dr Seuss fabric for the back & handles, teamed up with some other bright fabric, I am rather happy with the result!

What do you think?

Shh! They won't be receiving them until next week!

Dear Jane ~ The journey has begun!

Today I completed the first four (4) blocks of the 169 square blocks! I am starting with the easy one and have a folder to put them all in!

Now all I need to do is 3 or 4 blocks every week to reach my goal of completion at the end of the year!
