When Dear Jane meets Tula Pink - Row A

When Dear Jane meets Tula Pink 
- the EPP version.

I have finished Row A of my Dear Jane Quilt and I am loving this project more than I probably should!  I am loving the tiny piecing. Some blocks already have over 40 pieces in them and these blocks are a mere 4.5" square.

 I am also making myself sash the blocks as I go because I know I will hate myself at the end if I do not and its also a great way to ensure that all those tiny pieces of paper get removed in a timely manner instead of all at the end when patience is wearing thin and a few are bound to be missed. 
Not something that my Long Arm Quilter would be to happy about!

Here is my progress so far.

I have also decided to work on my borders as I go.
This quilt is going to be a true explosion of colour.

I am approaching this project with the same plan as my La Passacaglia.
Not overthinking the colour placement and just working with what ever fabrics I am liking on that particular day.

I am using the silver/grey print from Tula Pink's "True Colours" Range for the consistent background.
The black sashing is a black on black swiss dot by Riley Blake and a thin black and white stripe for the scallop edge.

Time to start Row B.

Happy Stitching,

  1. Loving how your Dear Jane is coming along, it looks stunning so far. Good idea to do the sashing as you go, it will be much more accurate in the long run. Hope you have plenty of the background, sashing and that gorgeous striped fabric you are using for the scallops, you don't want to run out.

  2. It looks fantastic!! Thes fabrics are magnificant for your dJ. Perfectly sewing.
