It's not unusual for me to work on two or three projects in one day.  This will be one of those days!

The first thing this morning, I was working on my mother's birthday gift.  No pictures of that, because it's going to be a surprise.  

Next, I've got to think about the fabric that will go with my "Cobweb" quilt blocks.  They are all strip pieced, using authentic feed sack fabric.  Only a solid will do.  Here's what I'm considering ...
I do have an old flour sack, but I think that would be too blah.  I have lots of other solids, but these are large enough that I'll have enough to make all of the side triangle pieces the same color.  I think that's in the spririt of the quilt - using the fabric that I know I have enough of!  I'll probably make my decision and finish these blocks today.

Hand quilting has begun on the "Kaleidoscopes" quilt top ... about 1/4 of the blocks are quilted, so I'll be showing that off soon.

Last, but not least, it's a progress report on DEAR JANE!  The rows are together and all that remains to be done is sewing on the final borders.  I'm planning a 1/2" inner red border and a 3" green outer border.

I am in awe of your Dear Jane quilt. What patience and perseverance to make all those blocks. I like the solids too, makes the strings pop.
