rainbow inspired Dear Jane quilt. I'm thrilled to have this first row finally complete. I've been working on them for an hour a day over the last couple of weeks and don't they look pretty in a neat little stack?
I had chosen the freezer paper applique method but I rarely hand stitch these days because its no longer enjoyable or relaxing; I actually dread it. I was neither happy with the process, nor the results.
I'm looking at my decision, as a modern approach to this quilt (just like the colour layout) and as I have no plans to let the quilt police anywhere near it, I'm happier with the look of my blocks and I'm no longer dreading the applique blocks in future rows.
Happy sewing :)
