E PLURIBUS UNUM

E PLURIBUS UNUM  is quilted, bound and labeled.  It measures 28" x 35" and I made it to fit on my hanging quilt rack.



I also finished Row I of Dear Jane for February!  I think setting the goal is really helping me get this going.  Some of the blocks were super easy and others had around 40 tiny pieces and they were paper pieced of course.  Actually, every block was paper pieced except 5, 6 and 11.  Number 7 was paper pieced and then had a teeny tiny triangle on each side.  I cheated by using fusible web and machine appliquéd those because I had read comments by other women that just couldn't get them straight.  



I'm on a roll!  Thanks for visiting!

Love the E Pluribus Unum. Your bowtie fabrics are perfect.

I'm glad you're making a Dear Jane. You'll have to make it for both of us. That's one quilt I will never make! Great work.

Beautiful finish Ruth! Your dedication to the Dear Jane project is very inspiring (but there is still no way I'll ever start one)!

It's always a pleasure to finish something and be able to finally enjoy displaying it. AS for "cheating" for the DJ block: it isn't cheating, it's alternative construction :) I'm sure Jane would have used fusible web (and rotary cutters!) if she had had the option.

Great finish. I love what you have done with the panel--so unique!
Way to go on Dear Jane. Whatever it takes to get the block done isn't cheating, in my book. It's smart!

Your bow tie quilt is so so awesome! I love the center.
How nice that you could use the swap bow ties!
Nice DJ blocks.

Your patriot quilt looks fantstic Ruth. It's quite a striking emblem. Good plan for your DJ blocks. It's going to be a beautiful quilt when you are done.
