I found beautiful two colour Dear Jane's, which I loved, I found a lot of vintage inspired ones which were pretty and then I found a blog called That Quilt, which had a layout for a rainbow Dear Jane and inspiration struck:
I think that's why I love samplers so much; they are meant to be scrappy and they tell their own story with the fabrics we use from the stash that we have accrued through our years of quilting.
I have chosen a scrappy palette of small print fabrics, for my rainbow inspired Dear Jane quilt:
I'm determined to finish one row of blocks at a time and then piece the rows together, as I complete them. For my first attempt at this quilt, I worked on all the blocks that appealed to me first (aka the easy ones) and then I was left with all the harder ones. If a block takes two or three of my one hour sewing sessions to complete, that's perfectly fine, I'm in no rush and each one motivates me for the sewing day ahead.
Here's the look I'm hoping to achieve:

It's a modern take on a beautiful, classic quilt and I love it. Hopefully mine will look just as pretty and colourful as the diagram, one hour at a time :)
Happy sewing :)
