Deana: Bee, Myself, and I

I am excited to join the "Bee, Myself, and I" group over at GrannyMaud'sGirl.  GrannyMaud'sGirl was in my Stashbee Hive last year and I fell in love with her "perfect" work and her blog.  While I chose to stay in the Stashbee, she is choosing to make blocks for herself this year instead so as to get some finishes.  

Here are my goals for the first few months:

  • 3-4 Dear Jane blocks a month.  Here are some I have ready to make this week.

  • Make another row of blocks in my Block Lotto Winnings Quilt.  I have participated many times but this is the first time I won.  Now I have a fun quilt to finish.  I have cut out all the blocks for a new row and begun to sew them together.  (I hope to have this top ready, minus borders, this week.)
 The other blocks cut and ready to sew.

  • Make one more row in my family round robin "Periwinkle" quilt.  I have the pieces all cut and ready to sew up as well.

  • Cut, fuse, and blanket stitch around the horse silhouettes for my Dad's quilt
  • Make enough blocks to add to my Stashbee quilt so that I can get a top done once all the blocks arrive in February.  I have not yet revealed the blocks, but you can see a pile of cut pieces for each of two different blocks  on the far right.

I am linking up today with BOM's Away, Design Wall Monday, Monday Making, and Main Crush Monday.

Even just your Dear Jane blocks alone are a good goal!

Beautiful projects underway. I hope you make great progress on them this week. The Dear Jane blocks are lovely.

I love that you precut several blocks and then do the sewing. I think I need to copy that idea! so I can make some headway on projects like you will be doing this week.

Such fun block work here. I'm so sick of sticking with one project - can't wait to get this thing cleared off my work space so I can get back to my normal routine. :)
