Jane Stickle Block Update

Here are the Jane Stickle blocks completed in April and May (I failed to log my progress last month).  I went back and reevaluated some of the blocks planned to redo.  I was unhappy with most of them because they had the background fabric I originally intended to use all the way through the quilt.  I now think they are okay to use because of the variety of background fabrics surrounding them.  So, I have 151 of 169 center blocks completed.  There are lots of triangle border blocks yet to be done, but the end is in sight for the center blocks. 

These are the knitted dishcloths completed this month.  Bob and I have been re-watching a lot of old movie series during the evenings, and I use that time to knit them when I’m not doing hand applique on Jane Stickle blocks.  The process is relaxing and they will be an addition to my badly depleted gift drawer.

Thank you to all who responded to my last post with sympathy and good wishes for my ailing dog, Chloe.  Your comments are very comforting.

Good show, Mary. 150 blocks! WTG. I have 140 and then'I'll really fall behind because I'll be away from my sewing maching most of June so I'll have to play catch-up. At least we're seeing the end in sight after those side blocks are done.

Gosh the Jane blocks are beautiful and I hear the triangle edges go quicker than the center blocks.....I can't bear to use the "dish cloth" you sent me as a dishcloth! May I just call it a pot holder??? LOL...

Awesome progress on your Jane blocks! They are all beautiful!

Those dishcloths look terrific!
I'm so tempted to try making a few.
