Here she is, my version of the Jane Stickle civil war quilt.
This isn’t the greatest of photos but it was the best I could do. I am not going to complain about having bright sunshine after all the dreary, rainy days we’ve had this summer!
I attached the borders on Saturday so Jane has been pieced in an 8 month time span. She is going to rest until sometime in August when she’ll be marked for quilting. The plan is to put her in the quilting frame and start the hand quilting in September. It will take as long as it takes.
I’m burnt out on sewing right now so I’ve started sorting through my project tubs. I’m weeding out quilt projects that I no longer want to make. It is interesting how the bright colors I like now are so different from the jewel tones I liked 10 – 15 years ago. Some of the fabric, along with a box of books, will be donated to the Relief Sale in September.
It feels good to have downsized and I hope I can hold firm in my resolution to only purchase fabric when I have a designated use for it.
I’ve linked to Esther’s Wednesday Wow! She’s weeding out her stash too. I’m also linked to Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Richard and Tanya Quilts, A Quilting Reader’s Garden, Simply Pieced, My Quilt Infatuation and Crazy Mom Quilts.
This is a LOT more links than I normally link to, but I want to whole world to know, Jane is pieced!
