Spring to Finish & Swap Blocks....

I joined Jacquie’s “Spring to Finish" Challenge
I started with theses blocks ….

And ended up with this…

The quilt is a nice size 42 inches by 42 inches. Perfect for the car for little T.
It is layered and basted (boy for me that is the worst part) now I do not machine quilt so I am very excited to say that I will be able to start to hand quilt it tonight as I watch Survivor!! I know it needs to be done by the end of April; I cannot promise that, but thanks to Jacquie, it is now not in my closet as it had been for over 10 years!! Thanks Jacquie!!

I have received two more sets of swap blocks.

Nan- Section 5 Red Star of Hope
I love the choice of the different reds!

Nan also sent me this darling frame, thank you so much, I wonder if I have a picture of little T anywhere??

Ginny Section 4 Light Blue Calico Puzzle
Perfect work!!

Ginny also sent me this darling burp cloth for little T. Thank you Ginny I love burp cloths and use them all the time. The blue thread matches her perfect blocks.

Let's see I have 19 sets of blocks out of the 45 sets I need





  1. Can't miss Survivor, that's for sure!!! Congrats on your new quilt top. What a terrific car quilt!

  2. I find it hard to look at quilting on this blog....there's an angel on the right that always makes me wish for babies!

  3. I always love looking at all your pretty fabrics! I hope you had a wonderful Easter. ~Natalie

  4. I love the way your quilt looks! Great job!

  5. I heart Survivor too!I am so ready for them to kick off Coach. He seems like such a fool.....altho they may just be editing him that way. I like Taj....altho i think they're going to blindside her....

  6. Love the bright happy quilt Jane..
    Turned out really well.. nice to have another nearly finished quilt.

  9. What in the world are you hand quilting it for???

    Seriously you are so amazing!!

    I really like the black you choose...fits well!

    What are your swap blocks for that you need so many?

  10. ooo.. I like the black sashing! Perfect choice. I know what you mean about hand quilting. It feels so good to have something ready to work on.. and especially to get that one out of the closet. FUN!

  11. Those colors are just so amazing, eye popping. I don't think I know how to use those colors! :)
    Thanks for stopping by.
