Choices are good !


After, or rather while doing my full Dear Jane quilt, I also made these.
The blue and white one is made from fabrics I have got for gifts - the upper left corner is fabric that my DD2 bought for my birthday one year, from her own money :-)
All the blocks are machine sewn and the small quilt is hand quilted.

The second is a Row Jane - like a Round Robin in rows.
Special rules was made.
One could not repeat any blocks made in any row before or a row combination done before
and it was a recipe for what rows could be used.
Row combinations on this one:

ABCDE
AABAA
ABCBA
ABABA
ABBBA

The owner of the finished quilt sends all the fabrics needed and prepares the setting.
One can add one's row to the top or to the bottom.
I started this one and my row is the middle row - ABCBA

Well done! I don't know which I like better but the blue and white combo is always good--like porcelain! What a sweet gift from your daughter to get you fabric that she knew you would use.

Nice quilts Hanne, I like both of them. White and blue, you never can go wrong. Your colors are very beautiful also. Both are the tops.
