Ode to Dear Jane Sampler

After several years of working on some Dear Jane blocks and coming to the conclusion that I was doing too many alternate blocks because I couldn't do the original blocks (too hard!), I decided to call it quits and use the blocks that I had and make a sampler. I named it "Ode to Dear Jane." I'm very happy with the way that it turned out and only have to decide how to quilt it now! I truly admire those that have finished a Dear Jane quilt and those that have finished more than one!!!! Quilting is supposed to be fun and this just wasn't fun for me anymore, so it was time to turn to other things. It's good to know when to say no to some things and I feel much better now that I have made this decision!

Also I finished the Block of the Week from Crazy Mom Quilts blog. These are so much fun to do and I thank her for doing this!

I'll be off to visit my grandgirls in Ohio for the next few days so will be away from my computer, so therefore no blog messages. Instead I'll be playing 5 and 2 year old games!!!!!! And some visiting with their mom and dad, too!!! We're hoping we don't run into the big storm that is supposedly headed that way--maybe it will stay north of them!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Your Dear Jane blocks are beautiful and the wallhanging looks great. I am glad you were able to finish the block a week block, I really like the colors. Have a great weekend!

Well done for even attempting a Dear Jane. I took one look at the book and fled.
