Wow, it's been a long time!

Coming up for air here, if only for a moment! I see my last post was done the night before I went back to school. At 51 college is still fun, even if it is demanding. I still love it. Don't listen to me all those times I'm whining and complaining. Hmmm. Tonight I'm feeling relieved because the 3rd oral exam is done. It's always good to cross something off the list, even if there is so much more left undone. Wow, I've really strayed off the path here! Let's get back to stitching!

I have been able to find a few minutes here and there to do a little work on my baby Jane. This first block is called Grandpa's chickens. It is K-2, was completely machine pieced and has 40 pieces. The block in the original quilt has the borders done in the background color, but I like it this way!

I'm counting down to getting all of my triangles done and because the end is in sight, have been doing more of those than blocks. This one is BR7, was machine pieced with a little of the usual applique and has 27 pieces. I love this fabric!

I really like how this one turned out! This is BR6 called Frank's Ric Rac. This was mostly paper pieced and has 31 pieces. 

Sorry, couldn't get this picture to rotate. This one nearly killed me. Seriously, a couple of these seams were ripped out up to 7 times! I just should have done this completely differently than I did, but oh well, it's done! This was also mostly paper pieced. It is BR10, called Nicholas' Diamond and has 25 pieces. Trying to get the hardest ones done first.  I think there are only 6 triangles left to be tackled!

There are a couple more than this done, but the camera is on the fritz, so no pictures yet. Oh, and if you see this one, please let me know. It's gone missing. Happens this is probably my least favorite block of the bunch, so that's probably why it crawled off somewhere. Sure hope I don't have to remake it! 

Hope you are all well out there in blogland. Will try to post more this weekend!
