Jan's Quilt

Its been great fun experimenting with the stash of fabrics to try out some blocks for the quilt. I've 1 each of the 3 styles I thought I'd use, in the full quilt the fabrics will be different in each block although the basic block shape will stay the same.
Then I stitched them together and had a go at different ways to quilt each block. I really like the close quilting and the machine equivalent of tieing which I've used on the random strip pieced block.
Jan will see them next week and then I can get started for real!
Sadly I still have some UFO's to finish, but I really can't wait any longer to be creative!
