More Blocks

I’ve been a bit slow on the blogging lately, but on most days have managed to do a little bit of sewing.
Went to a Sew in Day last Saturday run by Pine Valley Quilts and managed to make 2 more in my Dear Jane Blocks Journey.  I started this
quilt way back when, and have just gotten the urge to get back to it.
Made another couple in the last day or soDear Jane 3
These blocks are 4 1/2” finished.Dear Jane 001
Dear Jane 4 Dear Jane 002 I was so annoyed with myself making this block ( above) I had 3/4’s of it pieced when I realised I had printed the pattern out at 6 “ instead of 4 1/2” . I finished it to go in the UFO draw, and remade it in the smaller size.
I also managed to get my Barbara Brackman Civil War Block made.
This is Week 8 and is called COTTON BOLLCivil War Not so good in the centre matching, but I think I’m O.K. with it. I may tweek it a little before I piece the quilt!
I haven’t done any Nearly Insane Blocks this week so must get on and do one in the weekend.
Thanks for dropping by  best signature

The Dear Jane blocks are just wonderful and what a challenge making them to such a small block size. I like your Cotton Boll and I too didn't centre my centre exact but I can live with it.

It has been devastating watching the news from Christchurch - the city where my paternal Grandfather was born and our thoughts, prayers and hopes are with everyone concerned. Take care.
