Just sewing along...


Two more Dear Jane blocks are finished. I have introduced a black print at Block #14.  My plan is to use a black print for every 14th block as I alternate the pink and green blocks.  I will be using a lot of black prints in the triangle borders.  That is the plan at this point. 

Here is a  peek at how my rendition of "Soul Searching" is looking so far.  .  I am working on Block #5 today.  I may stop at six blocks instead of nine.  We shall see...haven't totally decided yet   Having fun sorting and choosing scraps. 

Finally, got around to sewing up my Sock Monkey pillowcase.  I used Kona Snow for the body of the pillowcase.   RetiredHub wondered why he didn't have one for his side of the bed.  Think I have enough left to make him one too.

Hope you are having a quilty day!
