Caught up with the Baby Janes

I'm very happy to report that I've completed a total of 11 Dear Jane blocks and am now caught up with the Baby Jane's group. From now on it will be two blocks a week - hopefully very manageable. Just in time, as tomorrow I start taking care of Joseph two days a week. I'm thrilled to have this opportunity but it will cut into my quilting time. I'm going to us his nap times to do handwork on UFO's - tomorrow it will be hand quilting.

So, what's going to be next? I believe I'm going to focus on getting my pre-1830's medallion to the finished flimsy stage. I need to put those two baskets of fabrics back on the shelf so I can have them available to hold the fabrics for my Salinda Rupp quilt.

Your DJ blocks are lovely. But I am still holding off on these. For now I will just admire the work of others.

I'm a hold out, too *s* But I sure enjoy seeing all the blocks that everyone is making . . . maybe one day.

Wow Patti - Civil War, Dear Jane, Nearly Insane AND a medallion quilt?! I'm so impressed. I'm trying to not start any of the other ones until I have Dear Jane done. I think you've managed to catch up to me now. Your blocks look great. All of them. I was planning on just doing a few blocks this month, but maybe I should aim higher and try to get caught up with the group as well!

My goodness Patti,you get just busier and busier! Must be the new hair 'do' *VBS*
The new 'busy' with Joseph will be wonderful addition to you life, how wonderful to get that quality time with him, and at such a fun age! As always, the blocks are beautiful. Hugs, Finn

Beautiful blocks! I'm finally getting caught up on my blog reading and I am so impressed with all of the work you've done on your THREE long term projects(eeek, I'm nervous about committing to even ONE long term one!). Way to go!
