Catch up with Dear Jane

I haven't gotten tons of quilting, but I haven't totally neglected Dear Jane.  I finished my second triangle, completing the entire first row, triangles and all.

My second triangle: right side, 1st from top.  This one was SO much easier than my first triangle!

I then followed my plan and started on column 1.  I already had completed A-1, so I started right in on B-1.  I love the background fabric.  I think I spent more time auditioning the background placement than I did appliqueing the circles.

This easy bit of paper-piecing was a real breeze.  Thank heavens Jane threw us a few soft balls like this one.

Alison and I got along just fine too, though it was kind of a bear to iron nice and flat.

D-1 Alison's Guiding Light

I just finished Aunt Exie, though I see I still have some fabric removal to do on the backside.  Oh well, I'll get to that later.

I haven't even started F-1 yet.  It's a mix of paper piecing and applique.  I'm making it in my favorite bright green hand-dyed fabric (that I've used for everything *grins* ).  It should really pop!
