Dear Jane for April 2015

This month I managed to finish 3 blocks before the monthly meeting.

I am finding some different modern fabrics to work with that I think work well with all of the Kaffe fabrics that I have been using.

Here are my blocks:

My heart’s are looking more like a flower, but I needed to use Green and Green Hearts did not seem very appealing to me so I went with pink and bright green fussy cut flowers.

If you look at Mohawk Trail you will see that I haven’t stayed with the program once again! The center block is rotated.  I think this looks better and several of the ladies in my group thought so, too. Sorry Jane!

I have decided what I will use for sashing fabric, although at only 61 blocks finished perhaps I am thinking too far ahead?  But, I needed to because I discovered that I was using up my 10 yards of backing fabric much too quickly.  No doubt due to my extravagant cutting when paper piecing. I tried to get more of the same fabric, but after buying from two sources and getting two different greige goods that were not the same shade of gray (ha ha, gray greige goods!) I decided that I will be using a different color for my sashing.  And, that will be a nice light brown/gray fabric. I am using Moda Bella Stone for my sashing.
