Dear Jane 26

The www Dear Jane hype is helping all of us to tackle the difficult blocks and keep us inspired.
All those wonderful pictures on Facebook and on the internet keep me going!!

My first 25 blocks are done and put together.
The next trip around the world will be in one fabric, bright red/pinkish. And after the Annual Meeting  of the Quiltergilde last Thursday I saw the pictures of Ted Storm's ElaTed quilt in progress and thought I do my best and try to do this next block Ted's way: Marking on the right side of the fabric and tagging the seam allowance before hand stitching it on the background fabric.

Running in circles.....

In March we had our first ever Quiltersgilde bloggers meeting. It was great to get to know each other better and we went home with a lot of new inspiration and ideas....
The brown bag was one of the challenges we had organized for all of us, but what a challenge that is!
Nienke made a felt circle for all of us and we worked a little bit with beads and embroidery.

this was my starting point 

 And if you don't pay attention and are thinking of something completely different there they are....

On this weblog I found the colorful ones . The others in shops and along the street......

this is how far I am, still needs some work  ;)
Happy Quilting!

Mysterie Quiltnieuws

Every now and then I have had time to work on the 4 blocks for the Mysteryquilt from this year.
We started a Facebook group for it! The pictures of the other members inspire me and I finished the fourth block while I was at my bee. I embroidered the spider cob with silverthreat. Not very easy to do, but it looks like a real one when the light hits it! 

And look who is on her way to her quilt bee!!!

Here they are: 

I am ready for the June issue of Quiltnieuws!!!

Happy Quilting,
