Hot off the ironing board

I have been keeping a record of the Dear Jane blocks as I make them, today when I counted the pieces in these two, I realised that I had reached  a bit of a milestone:

over 4,000 pieces  used and  40 blocks left to make  on the quilt.

This one was just 18 pieces and was paper foundation pieced.

  2. Hi Pip, Yes it is amazing how many pieces of fabric we cut up to make one quilt. But this one is very special - a masterpiece. I love your blue fabric.

  6. Wow Pip.....in the overall scheme of things, 40 blocks is nothing! :) You're doing a wonderful job. Hope you love your new machine. I am content with my 6260, but am sure Ruby will out-perform and make you smiiiiiile :)...and yes, can't wait to see the finished project!

  9. These must surely be two favourites, they are both very nice. Did Ruby make these two? and is she behaving?
