A forgotten block and Pam's baby Jane


I have been going back through my Dear Jane labelled posts and couldn't find three, only 47 blocks listed. Two were found in an unlabelled post but I finally worked out that poor little H-13 Farm Fields had been left out so here it is.



Last Saturday at our DJ sit and sew Pam was able to come so once again we were privledged to see her almost completed quilt. She has two sides of triangles left to quilt.



After looking at Pam's I have had a bit of a think about my quilt. I was doing it exactly the same in colour as the original. I have now had a play with the rest of the blocks and although most of the top two rows are completed I have still been able to have a bit of a play around and change some of the colours, especially in the bottom half. I have added a row of green and blue to the bottom rows following the pattern from the center blocks. I have also left a couple of the brown rows. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.
The ladies that have joined our DJ sit and sew have done very well. One of our older ladies Lorna in particular has gone right ahead and has completed 120 blocks since our first month...in March? I can't quite remember but she has done extremely well. I think I started off 5 of them and Julie has also gone past me, having completed 69 blocks. Kaye has also done extremely well, she started a few months after the others and has 30+ blocks completed.
