225 minus one

Instead of 99 bottles of beer I should start with 225 Dear Janes. I have finished my 1st Dear Jane square (D-8) so I can say that I have officially started my Dear Jane quilt. It took awhile to gather up the fabric
I decided that I would make one using the civil war fabrics and another with brighter fabrics. It won't be any more difficult to make 2 blocks at a time than 1.

I also thought that I would start with the applique blocks since I'm not that crazy about doing applique. It has been many (many) years since I did any applique and I'm a little rusty. These 2 blocks prove that. I'll get better. And one plus is there are so many squares that maybe when it's finished these will just be lost in the sea of the 225

How ambitious! Not one, but two? I like to do small blocks, but this is not on my to-do list. I will cheer you on.

Great blocks! I love the Dear Jane quilts but that will have to be on my to do list in a few years. You will have two amazing quilts when you are done.
