Drumroll please.....

...my Dear Jane adventure has started!! I am now a Janiac, and I love it! I recently spent a wonderful Saturday with a bunch of eager ladies and my favourite quilting teacher, Hanne Schneider.

Liv (in front) admiring one of Hannes quilts. Hanne has made several quilts using Dear Jane blocks.

Here it is! Hannes gorgeous Dear Jane quilt. Not all of the ladies plan to sew the whole quilt. I am - and I will not use a sewingmachine. My challenge to myself is; every stitch will be hand sewn!

And mayby one day I will make a Christmas Dear Jane? This lovely quilt is made by Hanne.

Kari in deep concentration :)

Thread, needles, chocolate, cake, fabrics - a big mess surrounded by happy ladies :)

I made these three blocks during the class, and the one below I made at home.

I am using repro fabrics from the Civil War, and Jane Austen fabrics. Some I have ordered from the US, and some from Denmark.

Have fun sewing!

Scatterbrained quilter

....thats me! Sometimes (just sometimes) I wish I was better at finishing projects. I do finish some from time to time, but I am even better at starting new ones. (Sounds familiar?) Last week I started cutting these lovely fabrics I bought a while ago. One day it will become a snuggleup-quilt in my livingroom.

I can see "the end of the tunnel" when it comes to this BOM. It seem like I have been working on it for ages. I still have nine flowers to make, but today I wanted some variation, and started making the centres of the flowers.

Looking at the flowers just makes me happy :)

Have fun sewing!
