Every day when I pass this tree on the way home from work I think to myself that I really need to get a picture. I am glad that I finally took it yesterday. We are having rain today and I am sure most of the blossoms are gone. Orleans is really a lovely town. Quite picturesque.



Last night I cut out the pieces for my Dear Jane block. I even managed to get two pieces put together. I hope to finish it tonight. This is such a relaxing hobby.

This morning I got my 44 parts made for part three of Orange Crush. Bonnie is giving two weeks between clues so I will have some time to get other things caught up.


I found the fabric for my Nine Patch and got the setting blocks cut this morning. I am actually starting to put this quilt together.

  3. I have to get that block prep too for handpiecing. It sure looks like there are a lot of tiny pieces... not looking forward to do this block.
    Great job getting Step 3 done on the mystery. I'm lagging behind, still on step 2... only 10 blocks done.

  5. Pretty tree and pretty block. I took a pick of my neighbor's tree last year because it was so beautiful. She has a pink one. Things will be pretty today after all that rain. Hope you are quilt guild on Thu.

    My goodness that DJ block looks complicated! I can't wait to see it finished.

  7. You certainly have been busy!! Is what you are doing with your Dear Jane pieces is drawing a line on the fabric and lining the freezer paper templates along the line? I think that is such a good idea - I just put mine on the fabric helter skelter. I bet you get much better use of the fabric and more straight grain. I think I will have to start doing that. I draw a cutting line around the entire piece plus a sewing line. No wonder this is so slow!!
