Baby Jane is 6 months old!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Baby Jane is really growing. She is 6 months old!!!

This first block is E-9 Quilt Jail. It was fun to piece. Again, we paper pieced this block.

It is amazing to me that I am 6 months into this project and the progress that has been made is because of Anina and her hard work on these blocks. Thank you Anina.

For those of you that say you could never do this, you are wrong. I have not hand stitched any of these blocks, with the exception of the applique blocks. Everything is being done on the machine. I am using the Dear Jane software, and it has been invaluable. I am also using the Dear Jane rulers (tools), the square and the triangle.

This triangle is RS9 (Right side 9th from the top) Danish Delight.
I have also decided that as I make a block or triangle that I will cut a plain triangle for the border out of the fabric that I use for the block. That way, I won't have so many to do at the end of this project.

I still haven't decided what I want to use to sash these blocks, so I haven't started doing any of that.

Now that I have my assignment complete for this week I can work on a Christmas present. I really need to complete the quilting on one of those quilts.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you affected by hurricane Ike. This is one BAD storm. Stay safe.

Why thanks for all the praise. Wow! Your blocks are so pretty. Pink is, of course, my favorite color.
