The two new quilting groups that I enjoyed yesterday were
(1) The Churn Dashers, a group of ladies in the Tidewater Virginia area, who enjoy making civil war era repro quilts, and have a block exchange each year. It is going to be so much fun to be a part of this group.
(2) A Dear Jane group, that is just starting making blocks for the Jane Stickle quilt. It is a 13 month project, and they intend to make 13 blocks each month, as there are 169 (13x13) blocks in the main part of the quilt. I love this quilt, and have decided to join in the fun.
Here are pictures of my first 13 blocks.
Making Dear Jane blocks is so much fun. I hope to learn how to make the edge triangles while I am in this group.
I did start the middle mariner's compass for Esther Aliu's Love Entwined. I will share that with you in my next post. In the meantime, I am going to go to Esther's blog on Wednesday to see what work is in progress in other people's sewing rooms. Link: (Work in Progress Wednesdays)
