|40 done, 100 to go|
The four blocks I completed are:
I paper-pieced D-8 and D-10 and appliquéd D-9. D-7 was traditionally pieced and it's not perfect but sewing all those curved edges wasn't easy for me. Well, if I have to admit it, neither is paper-piecing and appliqué.... lol. I make quilts to learn and so far every single one of them has been a learning experience for me.
One of my daughters asked me to give her a quilt... the Dear Jane quilt. Now, I've given quilts to two of my granddaughters and one of my sons but I'm reluctant to give her that quilt for some reason. I considered making a Dear Jane for years and years before I finally made one... and it took a long time to finish it what with all those intricate blocks and tricky triangles. But I don't think that's why I won't give it to her. She lives together with her older sister, who really admires the Dear Jane quilt too, and I don't feel great about giving one of them that quilt. But eventually someone has to get it, so maybe I'll think more about it... and maybe I will give it to her.
My oldest grandaughter and my son gave the quilts back to me that I gave to them. Not because they didn't like them but for other complicated reasons which I'll share one day. Not now. So hard to give my quilts away; they're my babies.
