Dear Jane returns ... to a mess of fabric all over the lounge room floor

I am back to my Dear Jane blocks after months of inactivity. Now that the kids have returned to school, it is a little easier to find some stitching time.

F13 Tour



I used

my new silk threads



this block and it really is very beautiful to work with. The silk 'disappears' into the fabric wonderfully.

And this is the fabric mess on the lounge room floor! In a mad rush of enthusiasm, I cut


for this quilt immediately after

my visit to Hatched & Patched with


two weeks ago. It is my version of Anni's new pattern 'Ava Rose'. I am using


'Barefoot Roses' fabrics by Tanya


. And here it sits, strewn on the floor, waiting for me to be happy with the 'random' placement of the fabrics! It takes me a long time to 'do random'!! Hopefully, more progress on this front soon!
