Dear Jane H-1 Peek-a-boo
This block made for a nice, simple change of pace after all that applique. Such easy construction for a change; and this one went together very nicely, which is not always the case. I love this batik, with its little hints of pink and purple. Of course, I love most batiks, lol, especially the ones I end up purchasing, so that's no surprise. I find myself cutting gaping holes in my collection to get to that perfect section with the "best" colors. It's all part of the fun of making a batik/hand-dyed Dear Jane.
Another part of the fun is selecting the perfect batik for the next block. My batiks were scattered all over my sewing room, so I developed a system to display and hang all the batiks in each colorway. It really adds a lovely splash of color to my studio without taking up any additional space. More on that later, also, Larry is working on a mystery tatting project. Mystery tatting? Who knew? In the meantime, Happy Quilting!
