The Last 2 DJ Blocks!

Hard to believe these are the very last 2 blocks I have to show you! Just the finishing touches are left on my quilt and I have to say that I really love it! But I digress, here are the last 2:

First is M-11, Rickshaw which was paper pieced and has 31 pieces.

 Last, is M-12 called Hopscotch is pieced and has 19 pieces!

I will follow with some photos of the finished quilt soon. As soon as I get the binding done and a wee bit of hand quilting...

Since finishing my baby Jane, I have finished a couple of other quilts. When you work so much on these tiny blocks with a zillion pieces, you forget how fast a regular block goes! Anyway, here's a couple photos of a recent finish.

This is a Lone Star quilt that I started in a Jan Krentz class. She was a great teacher and this was a fun quilt to make! I look forward to making more Lone Stars!

 Here is a close up of one of the corners detailing the quilting...
This is the first time I've done the little swirls in the feathers. I'm pretty pleased with it!

Hope you are working on something wonderful and fun. Please leave a comment if you would like.
Come back soon because I'm going to share a darling new fall pattern from my bff. And you will love. it!



  1. Congrats on your last 2 JD blocks. I have about 75 finished, but haven't worked on them in a while. Your lone star is beautiful!

  2. Hi Melanie,

    Wonderful creations. I like Hopscotch the best.

  3. Very lovely blocks and the Lone Star quilt. It's always wonderful to see what other quilting designs that other quilters use. You did an awesome job! I have done a few of them. You can see one on my website on the quilt gallery page:)

  4. I love all of the purple and green in your quilts! Beautiful work :-)
