Flying through!

I managed to get a few blocks completed over the weekend. B13, D13, E4, E10, I1, I2, J4, and M13 Lynette's Diamond, are all completed, as well as TR5 Michigan Dunes, the triangle of the week for this week.
This is coming along quicker than I thought, as I didn't think I would have much time with working on donation quilts being my highest priority. But, the beaut thing about Baby Jane blocks is that they are so small and portable so I can piece one while on a bus or train, or in the lounge room when my girls won't give me space to work on one of the donation quilts. 
My LQS is having a bit of a sale at the moment, with lots of purples out on the sale rack, so I think a shopping trip is in order later in the week. 
I am also considering beginning another Dear Jane quilt at the same time, in 2 colors only, black and silver. This one would be in satin, and would suit my room so much better than the purple. If I do begin the black and silver Jane, the purple Jane will become my daughter's quilt, as it is in the same coloring as her sister's hexagon quilt, and some of the same fabrics. But I have never seen a satin Jane before, so I will have to have a chat to the DJ list ladies and see what they think. 
Pictures later today, I promise!

One down, how many to go?

Well my first is completed! All 16 pieces! If only I could find my camera cable to post the picture... I am now half way through M13 Lynette's Diamond. I figured I needed to tackle one of the curvy ones right away, to get me over my fear of paper piecing curved lines. And so far, it's looking good! I will finish that little beauty off tonight, and post pics when I am done!

Block One...

Today I have begun my Dear Jane quilt. I have decided to make her in all different shades and patterns of purple, as I had a fair bit of purple in different variations left over from Shelby's purple hexagon quilt. I am starting with Janiac's September 2010 BOM, Cowboy's Star. I will post pictures of each block as it is finished, so keep watching this space!
