Absence and an Inability to Spell

Wow it's been a loooonnnggg time and as I tried to get started, I couldn't figure out how to spell the very first word I typed, "absence." My spelling just gets worse and worse. Is that an age thing? 

Well now, I have been working on my Baby Jane even though I've not been blogging about it! So I'm going to get right to things and show you a few blocks that have been recently completed.

This first block is called Brandon's Star (K13) and has 22 pieces. I don't really remember making this one, but I'm pretty sure it was rotary cut an pieced.

This next one was harder than I had anticipated! If you look closely, you will find it to be quite wonky, but I'm just going to live with it! It is L3 called Reflections Abound, was mostly paper pieced and has 25 pieces.
 Next in the block parade is L1, Widow's Pane, was paper pieced and has 20 pieces.

There's something about this next block that just never looks right. Every one I've seen looks just a bit wonky, as does mine! This is L4, St George's Cross, has 21 pieces and was mostly paper pieced (and STILL looks wonky!).
 Lastly for tonight is L5, Chatanooga Charlie, L5, which was paper pieced and has 23 pieces.

I hope to be back soon as I already have several more blocks made that I would love to share with you!
Someone is encouraging me to do a giveaway soon, so check back to see what might be going on around here.
BTW, there's only 5+ blocks left undone in this quilt! The goal is to have her done by the end of this month! Yahoooooo!

Hope you are getting some stitching in too!
