Okay, now I have THREE new quilt projects going!  Yes, I think I am obsessed.  While I was in Iowa visiting my brother-in-law in the hospital my new Dear Jane book arrived.  And since my sister told me that she has already gotten started on her Dear Jane I figured I had better get busy and catch up!  So in a day and a half I have gotten four blocks done.

These certainly aren’t perfect.  Hopefully practice will straighten out all the crookedness and uneven sizes of the little pieces!

My other new project is from Oh, Fransson.  Ansley has claimed this one for her new bedroom.  I sewed all of the strips together and am cutting out all of the big diamonds.  I have six done with three full and four half diamonds to go.  Then the question needs to be addressed – whether to applique the diamonds onto the gray background or to piece the whole thing.  With no pattern the applique option may be easier – but the pieced option will probably look better.  A connundrum….
