13 Months of Jane begins..
Quick info for those of you who do not follow my regular blog:
I'm instructing a 13 month Dear Jane club called Dear Jane Your Way at a shop in VA. I've had many bloggers email me about the club. (wishing they lived nearby to participate) So I've decided to create this blog to offer support & motivation to online quilters that want to begin and/or finish their own Jane quilts within the next 13 months.
Our local DJ club began in January - however I will begin documenting this journey online TODAY on March 1st 2012 and officially launch Month #1. I'll post pictures of the finished blocks I chose to make for each month right here for those that wish to follow along. Brenda Papadakis offers cutting & assembly tips to make these blocks on the Official Dear Jane website under Block Tips. (found on the left sidebar) Brenda also sells her books,rulers and software in her SHOP on the Dear Jane website.
OK, here are the first 6 blocks... M10, A6, B13, D13, I2 and M12.
Gather up your fabrics and pre-cut your blocks. TIP I like to keep each pre-cut block in a small baggie with a paper label tucked inside. I find that pre-cutting several blocks at once is time efficient. It makes the sewing process faster too having multiple blocks ready to sew once you sit at your machine.
Next week I will post pictures of these 6 blocks.
