I am still here.  I just finished my niece's wedding quilt the first of April.  I have to start her sister's quilt but I think I will wait until June. 

April 29th is my younger son's wedding and 2 weeks after that dh and I are going on a 2 week trip to Arizona and Utah.

I am starting a new group to make a new quilt but I think it will inspire me to finish my Dear Jane over the summer.

Oh so sorry June -- I meant to say "June", not "Dona" --

Nice to hear from you Dona!  I hope you get your photos to new computer figured out so you can post some!  I would love to see them.  I think whatever methods you use should be whatever works best for you, and I'm sure it will be wonderful.

I just figured something out.  I had wanted to hand quilt it (a first for me), because I really don't see any other way this one can be quilted.  But I had pictured in my mind, a burgundy background to match the sashing (and the non-pieced triangles will be that color too).  But the quilting will need to be a light color thread, which I do not think will look good on burgundy backing.  Sigh.  Perhaps an off-white backing and some burgundy binding.

Yes, Patricia4, this group is still active.  I have not posted for many months.  I got a different computer and haven't tried posting photos from my camera to the computer so that I can post photos here.  I left "Dear Jane" alone for quite a few months but have been inspired this winter to work on it.  I have finished row "F" today.  I don't always follow directions as I'm not good at foundation quilting and have never done needle turn applique.  So instead I've been using "Heat and Bond" and machine applique.  Some of the blocks sure are difficult.  To imagine that Jane must have done everything by hand!  Your quilt below is beautiful!  I like how you used maroon sashing between blocks; I think I will do same when I get that far.  Have a great day!

Not sure if this group is still active - Dona, are you still out there?  I have not been sewing for quite a while, but finally got Row I sashed and attached.  9 down, 4 to go, plus triangles.... then thinking about hand quilting it .... eventually.  Say, another 10 years or so ....

Well there are just so many fabrics and patterns to be distracted by, and I think we all suffer from that dilemma!  Would love to have you join in whenever you are so inclined.  ;-)

I've made a few blocks.  Hope to get back to it someday.  I'm always distracted by some new fabric or pattern.  I have tons of UFOs...:)

That is awesome progress Dona, I can't wait to see them!

Thank you Billie, nice to see you here.  Are you working on a Dear Jane?

Wow....all your blocks are lovely!
