One block done...



Whooowhooo! Finished, after working on the block for three days! But it's worth it, I really like it, and can't wait to get started on the next block! I did change the fabric around the geese section, the other one did blend too much with the pink fabrics. Now I have to get started on the monthly challenge projects.
I am excited to see how many of my wisp's and UFO's I can get done over the next months, but I hope to do at least one a month.
Happy sewing,
Laila

I like the block - how did you construct it? Paper piece? or stitch by hand? Good work and I like the colors.

Hi Laila!
I started sewing my dear jane not so long ago, more or less when my first block was published in the blog... that is last september... I am doing it on my own, following sometimes the useful guidelines of Georgina and Anina (you can find the links to their blogs in my blogs, the one of Georgina in the colourpatchs blog and the one of Anina in my Dearjane blog). I am doing it together with 2 friends that do not have a blog, we plan the blocks together and this is what is resulting.
About the DJ progress picture, I did it following the instructions in the blog of Anina,in one of their first posts at her dear jane blog. If you cannot find it I will scan the blog for you and send it. It is a bit tricky to add them but if you keep the procedure in a word file next to you you can follow it and do not have to remember it from time to time :)
Hope it helps, if not just drop me another message and I will give you my email so we can exchange longer messages :))
love

Marta

Kjempefin!! Også er jeg så imponert over alle Dear Jane blokkene du har laget - det blir nydelig med blå og hvit variasjoner. Selv har jeg ikke laget en eneste DJ-blokk etter kurset, men det blir nok etterhvert. Gleder meg til å se fortsettelsen på bloggen din både på Gåsemor og på DJ.

What a gorgeous block! Looks really complicated with the circle though...
