Dear Jane Update and a family visit

Here are the latest Dear Jane blocks.

I have not posted due to my brother visiting from New York.  One day we walked the Lake Murray Dam.  Well David walked slow...  So when we got to the Irmo side, I left him in the shade and I power walked back to the car.  I picked him up and away we went.  What a great walk.

This is David before the walk...  I'll spare you the after picture.  It was really hot this day but luckily there was a little breeze.

A few days later we went to Billy Dreher Island to explore.  What a nice place.

We've had a wonderful visit.  Sadly he leaves tomorrow for the next leg of his vacation.

Orphan Block Fun

My laundry basket of orphan blocks has been pestering me....

I put a few more rounds on this one and a border.  I'm calling it done.  This would make a great guy quilt.

This one is a collaberation of many left over blocks from many quilts. I love the randomness.

I added these two tops to the the never ending stack of tops.  I'd rather have tops than a basket of blocks.

Sadly there are at least two more quilt tops that I can make from that basket.  Those are for another day.

I have a T Shirt quilt I am working on.  Need to at least get through the fusing of the stabilizer today.  Then I can do one of my favorite things, designing.

PS. Only a couple new dear Jane Blocks finished.  Hope to complete a couple tonight...

Weekend Update

I had two bags of scrap fiber and made two pet beds.  I used two blocks that are stars.  I wasn't crazy over either block so I bordered them to make them larger.  The animals at the hospital won't mind the crazy fabrics.  My cats have already tested them.  I believe they approve!

And some more Dear Jane blocks.  My blocks are not perfect, just as Janes were not. I modify blocks to suit my style (or fix to cover my screw ups).

Hope you found some time to stitch today.

More Dear Jane Blocks

Here are some more Dear Jane blocks. I have been steadily working on them. I am enjoying the challenge of each block.
Today I am packing for a work trip to Denver CO. I see lots of hand stitching there. Yay! Frog Quilter
