Last week my husband and I took a little vacation time. One of the items on my bucket list is to visit every state. I have been to Missouri before but I'm not sure I have ever stayed in Missouri. We spent the week in Branson. One of my favorite places was Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. It was amazingly beautiful. We road a tram through the Park and it was well worth the time.
I thought I would get a start on my Dear Jane Quilt while riding in the car for about 9 hours each way. Discovered hand sewing in the car is not my strong suit. I finished half of one block on the way. When we came home I ripped out those awful hand stitches and fired up the sewing machine. I finished the four blocks I had prepared for sewing in the car. And Sew it begins...this will definitely be a long term project. If you aren't familiar with this quilt here is a link to my Pinterest page of Dear Jane's. Each finished block is 4".
I made myself a notebook to keep them all in one place as I finish them. (I have a tendency to lose things) It will be interesting to see how my skills improve as I progress.
None of them are perfect but they are at least the correct finished size, which will make piecing it all together much easier.
I cut out the strips for the next section of this quilt.
This lesson is complementary colors.
Have a Creative Day
