Anyway, I have been busy with lots of sewing projects - I just can't concentrate on one for long, it seems. A year ago, I was spending most of my sewing time on a Double Wedding Ring quilt that I had been planning for a long time. Then I got into some swaps that took a lot of my attention - Red and Aqua quilt, CW Siggie, apron, Holly Jolly blocks, and on and on. Don't get me wrong, I've loved each one of them, but they do take a lot of time and attention. During all of this I started a Dear Jane quilt, planning to have it as a very long term project. So now here's where I stand since last year; I've completed a quilt from swap blocks (Green and Cream), completed and sashed the Red and Aqua blocks, completed and sashed the blocks from the RWB swap, and the DJ quilt is getting very close to completion (the top, that is). And the DWR quilt that I was really working to complete? The blocks are in a box - I haven't touched it in months!
I started the DJ on August 29 last year, and I really want to have the top completed by that date this year. I think I can do it, if I try. The strips for the top are all put together, and I've completed 20 of the 52 triangles. I haven't tried any of the corner kites, yet, but since there are only 4 they shouldn't be a problem. Here's what I've accomplished since Thursday.
