Elm Creek Jane Revisited
I was talking to Melinda at http://melinful.blogspot.com/ who is also working on Sylvia's Sampler from Elm Creek Quilts. I really haven't seen anyone else working on this one! Everyone seems to be doing Dear Jane. I was inspired to pull out my blocks and see where I stand. I was puzzled to find that most of them were 6 inches unfinished, but some of blocks were 6.5 inches -- I don't know what's up with that. I also put in some of the first Dear Jane blocks I made early on before I switched to a blue and white color scheme. I'm not planning on making the whole quilt, but I haven't decided yet when to stop. I still need to decide on setting options. I have been pondering making each block into a star using flying geese units. Maybe I'll make a couple and see how I like it. I guess I should figure out how big I want it to be and where I want it to go. I've got a quilt spot in the foyer for small quilts and have been trying to do a seasonal type of thing. This would work for the summer I think, but sashing might make it too big.
