Design Wall Monday 04/30/12

I've got Dear Jane blocks on my Design Wall (Design Ironing Board) today.  I finished one that I had started a while back that I posted here.  Not sure if it will make it to the quilt.  You can see the top edge is too short in the middle section.  This will make that area have a 1/8" seam if I'm lucky.  But for now it stays.  It's been a while since I've worked on this project.  I made a "kit" for the orange block.  It's all prepped and ready to sew together tonight.

I'm ready to get out of my funk and start sewing again.  I think these DJ blocks are just the ticket.  I printed out a couple of easy ones to get me back in the swing of things.  I'm conflicted about my Just Takes 2 project and so it's temporarily on hold.  I need to lay out what I have and see how the different blues look together.  Now that I'm so far behind, I can make some informed decisions about what shade of blue to use for each block.

Be sure to check out Judy L's blog to see what everyone else is working on!!

Great looking Dear Jane block. Each one you cross off the list gets you one step closer to a finished quilt. Best of luck on the Just Takes 2. There seem to be a lot of people modifying the plan on that one. The blocks they are putting out turned out to be pretty ambitious.

That edge is a bit shy, but it's still within the seam allowance, so I'd go with it and keep rollin'! Get that mojo workin again! Your JT2 blocks look great too! : )
Glad to find someone else in NorCal!

Keep it, I think it will all work out in the seam allowances. I really love this block. I am a bit shy of doing DJ because they are ambitious, small and applique. I am enjoying 6 inch blocks, they are a bit easier to wrangle.
