Melanie and Her “Insanity” (Dear Jane)

Dear Jane — Insanity

Well I did it – I brought the Dear Jane quilt to North Little Rock today and delivered it to my daughter Melanie:

you can hardly see her but there she is under her new quilt

I finished one more block last night –

Row 12, Block 12 (L-12)

14 blocks left to make and sew the final two rows together.  Then it will be set aside until the fall most likely and then I will get started on the borders.  Now if I can just stay motivated to keep to this schedule!!

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    I’m saying it again; GORGEOUS quilt! I’m sure Melanie is thrilled by it! Not much to do on #2, you’re working really fast Karen. 🙂

    …I meant to say; not much left to do… :)Of course it is a lot of work on such a quilt…

    I like to keep my quilts for awhile too before I give them away. I’m sure Melanie is pleased that the time had finally come to get her quilt.

    What a lucky girl. I don’t know if I could bare to give a DJ away…. even to one of my beautifull daughters. ;o) Maybe one day.

    You are working those blocks for DJ#2 so quickly. Not much to go now.

    Melanie looks so happy under her gorgeous quilt!

    WOW! I totally forgot about the borders until you mentioned them…here I was thinking you were almost done!

    I want to thank you for you showing how to machine zigzag batting together…I did it on 9-patch quilt and it worked fabulously! (I thank you on my blog post today too.)

    Melanie looks VERY happy to finally have her quilt LOL. I really think you can get those 14 blocks done….if you don’t get distracted with a new project or something LOL.
