An Afternoon with Jane Stickle

Back in February, there were some of us who got together to start our own individual Dear Jane quilt(s), at a pace of just four blocks per month.  Due to my lack of photo taking, plus some blocks to make, I've had a lovely day today catching up with some sewing.

My blocks do look a bit "out of shape", as I am yet to trim them to their correct size.

Here are the March Blocks:

And the April Blocks:

I had two blocks to make today... to make up the four allocated for the month.....

And... the May Blocks:

...of which I made all four today.

I am truly enjoying the process of making the Dear Jane blocks.  In two colours, the piecing shows up well, but, most importantly to me, the level of difficulty in the blocks varies and with no instructions in the book, there is some quiet contemplation while I decide the best way to make each block.

One block at a time, is a lovely link to slow movement and taking time to enjoy the process.
