A Little Break

I have been working on Dear Jane and Sylvia's forever now it seems and finally I just needed a little break. 

I had ordered some patterns the other day from Mrs. Rosies Quilt Company that uses the new Moda precuts..candy (which are little 2 1/2 inch squares or mini charm packs).

I had enough fabric to acutally do both patterns but I only finished one so far, although the other is all cut out and ready to go.

I used Odds and Ends charm pack, this is the X topper and the O topper is ready to go next. 
 The lovely thing is that they don't take a lot of fabric and they are not very big so it is a nice change of pace (other than cutting 160 1.25 in squares that is), and no I was not going to draw a line on each on of those life the directions said.  I have the Angler so there you go.
Now to find time to quilt and bind this puppy and I will have a little finish for the year. 
Have a wonderful day.


  1. Oh 'chelle, I almost thought you had posted a photo of *my* "Speck" on your blog today! Our fabrics are so similar -- and I did the "X" quilt, too. Can't wait to see it in person.

  2. Nice "X" quilt I don't draw the line either. I press each one in half and sew on the fold and flip the corner. It's is much easier.

  3. Once again, you've done well, Baby Girl. See you Weds. And no, I've no Dear Janes done! LOL! Momma B
