Scrappy Perserverance

I finished the center blocks for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge Dear Jane Quilt in July of 2014.  It got put away then while I decided whether or not I wanted to do the triangle border blocks.  I was in the midst of the Scraphappy Sampler of 2014 and got a bit carried away,  leading straight into the Sawtooth Sampler of 2015.  Those are both done now, quilted and bound.
And so I come back to Dear Jane.  16 border blocks are already done.  It would be a shame to stop now, with almost a quarter of the work done, right?  Last night I pulled out the Dear Jane binder again and started sorting through all the bits.  I even saved Ziploc bags of color coordinated scraps!
I resurrected the mini quilt map made from 2.5 inch squares of each fabric.
It really is time to finish this one up.  Wish me luck!

I'm linking up with Oh Scrap! this morning at Quilting is more fun than Housework, head over to see what other quilters are doing with their scraps this morning.

Dear Jane is going to be absolutely beautiful when it is finished. It is already wonderful. Enjoy your stitching.

I'm glad you're going to finish the entire quilt! I remember watching your rainbow progress through the DJ blocks and being re-inspired to make this quilt. That hasn't happened yet, but it's still on my Quilting Bucket List!

Organization! What a concept. After finding myself making some of the blocks twice, I've decided I'd better get my act together. And I'm glad to see you bring it back...except to tell you the truth I assumed you had finished it.

So nice you are pulling some RSC quilts to finish off this year too. It will be fun to watch the rainbow DJ.... the blue one is still a favorite of mine.

I love the little map you made for your layout! Such a great idea! Do you have plans for it when the big quilt top is completed? Maybe for the back?!

Cathy said...

Good luck! I admire anyone that makes a DJ quilt!

This quilt must have been before I started following you. It definitely needs finishing. Those are a lot of work and the colors in this one are so happy!
