Too much to do, Dear Jane!

What was I thinking when I signed up for Happy In Quilting's 'Finish Five by the end of July Challenge'?! There is now just a week left in July & I have sewn a big, fat nothing - LOL! I took a huge suitcase of quilting back to the farm across the holidays with grand plans, including the three quilt tops I blogged about here, and the suitcase didn't even get opened. Does getting my roses pruned at the farm count Peg? HOWEVER, it is a new week, kids are back at school and perhaps there is room again in life for my grand plans!
I am way, way behind with my Dear Baby Jane blocks, but determined to catch up with the group again. I have done a few of the quicker ones to get myself back into it.
K8 Springbrook Park - foundation pieced.
G8 Justin's Comet - Wimped out completely on this block & pieced it more simply! All those set in seams & eight-pointed join in the centre scared me off!
H13 Farm Fields - they don't get much simpler than this one.
There are some real doozies to be done, including One, Two Buckle my Shoe , Pinwheel Gone Awry and the very scary Battlefield (name says it all really). And Anina is threatening a triangle block for Friday so I'd better get my rear into gear! Have a great week everyone.


  1. Beautiful blocks....I have thought long and hard about the pruning of the roses....and well....no I don't think so, not this time...but maybe a block or two....

  2. I think rose pruning counts for 2 projects.

  3. Your blocks look great. Really clever on G8. :-)

  4. Wonderful blocks, as always!

  5. I have finished 2 of 5 in Peg´s challenge, I don´t know either what I was thinking when I signed up :)

  6. Hope you get some stitching time soon. Love your Dear Jane blocks.

  7. I admire you for doing the Dear Baby Jane, I haven't gotten the nerve to do a project that big yet.

  8. Beautiful Blocks! great job!
