A Jane Block and Triangle

It has been somewhere around  4 months since I've done ANY work on my Dear Jane quilt. I felt like I needed to focus on getting some other things done and then came the Big C. But now I have done I-1 called Ralph and Nelda's wedding. It was rotary cut and pieced and has 20 pieces. It is not as wonky as this photo makes it look, but it is a bit wonky!! I'll be able to fix that when I set it in the quilt.

I also did a triangle. This one is LS11 called Kathy's Cake. It was paper pieced and appliqued like most of the triangles. It has 24 pieces. I'm motivated to keep going! In fact I quickly made another easy block this morning (I-2) but had measured the pieces wrong so it came out the wrong size and will have to be redone. Oh well, at least it was easy. I only have 3 more triangles to make on the left side and 3 or 4 on the right side to have the top and both sides done. I really should be focusing on Christmas presents though!

I have several things to get done this weekend. First, today I am going to go out and plant the pansies I bought. Our town is on water restrictions for a short time and so I can only water the yard on Saturdays and Tuesdays. That forces me to do the planting today.

The other thing I must get done is to put a border on the progressive quilt I am working on for a group member. They are revealing our quilts at the meeting on Monday evening. Unfortunately, I can't be there as my immune system is suppressed right now and the doctor won't let me be in groups. However, I have heard that my quilt is beautiful! I can't wait to see what it looks like! To see what I started with look here. It's the compass star and I hear the wonderful women in my group have done a fabulous job making something perfectly wonderful. I can't wait to see it and share it with you.

Hope you are doing something creative this weekend!
