After trimming up all the Rainbow Janes so far and getting them up on the wall yesterday, I noticed that a few of the melons and star points extended into the seam allowance. Not wanting the same thing to happen again, I marked the cutting line and sewing line before placing the melons on this little guy. He is J8 and is called Anna's Anchor. Sewing down the little melons sound like a great way to spend a few minutes today.
I've been chipping away at the hand quilting on the blue Dear Jane this week. Just 22 more blocks remain of the 48 in this very small Baby Jane. I'm thinking a nice rope will look good for the border. Are you planning a few quiet minutes of handwork during this hectic holiday season? Head over to Kathy Quilts to see what other hand work is in the works.
