While I was on a roll (kind of) with the Dear Jane blocks, I decided to keep going for a while.  I finished Row D and made 3 blocks in Row E.  I might make a few more before I put that bin away for a while.  I want to do a couple more first.




In between doing this, I have been quilting on my log cabin quilt and I started working on some fall wool appliqué.

Saturday, my neighbor and I are going to a quilt show in Philomath, OR and will visit at least one quilt shop on the way home.  I'm sure I'll have pictures to share from that.

Half of the bow tie blocks needed for the block swap with Fun With Quilts are finished.  Sorry the photo is so bad.  I plan to finish these and get them mailed next week.

The leaves are beginning to change as our temps are getting into the 40s some nights.  We're having a few warm days now, but the cooler days are coming!  Yea!  Have a good weekend!

I love those DJ blocks, particularly the third one! Wouldn't that make a beautiful large quilt? It would probably take forever though. The bow ties are cute too. Have fun Saturday; so glad you and your new friend will enjoy the day together. ---"Love"

We're starting to have some 40+ degree nights as well. Quilt weather! Love it. We're packing now and hope to hit the road in a day or so. Your quilt blocks are looking good! See you soon!

Once you get started with those blocks seems like you have to keep going. Great job!

If you are going to be in PHilmouth I would encourage you to go on to Benton County Exhibit Modern something.... Bill Volckening has quilts hanging. He has written about some of the quilts on his blog over the last two weeks.

Your DJ quilt is going to be wonderful! All of your blocks are beautiful! Those little bow ties are darling, too. Enjoy your stitching.

Some of those DJ blocks are mind-blowing. You have to keep reminding yourself that they aren't that big. Enjoy the quilt show. Those bow tie blocks are sweet.
