Not that you’d notice up there, with all the great swathes of ‘yet to be done’ spaces, but I’ve made another Dear Jane block.
This one is A12 Framed Fancy. I have one more to do on this row and then I can say I have finished One. Whole. Row.
I’m having a massive ‘Why did I start this stupid quilt, I am the world’s worst quilter’ moment right now. I can tell you that the best way to make yourself feel completely inadequate as a quilter is to search other Dear Jane blogs to see their tutorials. There are some quilters who are just immaculate. I don’t know how they get their work so even. It beggars belief how good some people are. I foundation pieced the block above which should make everything straight and lovely, and even this block is wonky in parts. I wonder if it’s my pressing that’s letting me down? Maybe I don’t pay enough attention to grain line?
Not asking for help here, really – just thinking out loud.
I was telling someone that I’d only done about a dozen blocks, but I didn’t really know how many I had finished, so I got them out of banishment and counted them. I’ve now done over forty which I must admit surprised me a great deal. So I’ve made one more today, and perhaps I can get back on some sort of schedule with this.
We shall see.
It’s another stinker of a day today and we’ve all acted like very precious snowflakes, sitting inside all day under the airconditioner. I hope you are all coping in the North with your very cold weather, I must admit to being slightly envious of you all.
