Angie (second from left in the photo)will most likely be the first Dear Jane goddess of our group -- as you can tell from these pictures, she has all 169 of the center blocks sewn together.
These pictures do not do the quilt justice. It is stunning in person...I can't wait until she adds the outer triangles and finishes it with hand quilting.
This is why I continue to attend gatherings like this...the energy and passion of my fellow quilters is contagious. And everyone in the group is willing to share tips, ideas, frustrations, etc. I often hear of groups like this being called "stitch and bitch" sessions, but I would definitely never, ever label them that way. At least not with the quilters I know.
After seeing the progress Angie has made on her quilt, I am determined to keep going with mine...it's going a bit slowly because I'm working on a block that has some applique on it...maybe I'll quickly work on a paper-pieced block instead...stay tuned...
