A UFO finish and other progress...Deana

I am happy to say that I finished my February UFO.  Horray!! I am 2 for 2 -- 2 months 2 finishes.  This quilt will now move to the "needs quilted" list.
I also completed another Dear Jane block.  It needs a little fine tuning on one point, though.  D-12 Crossed Swords has 27 pieces and took 1 hour.

Next up is Brown Bag.  I had a strange number of blocks to work with and ended up with this shape.  Originally I thought I would take the four remaining blocks and place them in the four corners.  There is a problem though, I DON'T LIKE IT.

Next I played with halfing them instead -- better -- but I still don't think its right.

I think the last pictures (below) is closer to what I'm looking for.  I will need to half the blocks and remove the navy border, but I think it will work.  I will also have to duplicate two of them because I don't have enough.

So glad you have finished an ufo, it always feels good to have it done :-) I think your brown bag will be nice with the half blocks like you show on the last pictures.

Congrats on finishing your February UFO - it is beautiful! Your Dear Jane block is amazing. I think your final layout selection is the best. It is going to be a very pretty quilt.

You have been so busy. Glad you got your hexie stack-n-wack done. It is beautiful. Your other projects are coming along nicely, and I love your block lotto.

Your quilts are all beautiful. Your do such good work. I can't believe how much you have accomplished this past month. I'm really loving those Block Lotto blocks. I want to see a quilt made up with those.
