Sundays with Jane
Each week, Barbara writes a short article about something in Jane's life, and accompanies that with an appropriately named quilt block. The posts appear on Sunday mornings.
Because of this wonderful block of the week, I've been reading Jane Austen's novels. I had sort of read Pride and Prejudice in high school, but I really didn't have the background knowledge to know what was going on, or to appreciate it. I'm saving it for last, as I read the others. The library has all the books, and I'm finding I really enjoy them, even to the point of reading when I "should" be sewing.
It's not too late to get in on the fun. All the instructions are still up. There will be a total of 36 blocks, and only 5 have been presented so far, so there's plenty of time to catch up. You can post pictures of your blocks, and see the ones everyone else has done. Quite a few are being done in modern fabrics, even some really wild and fun stuff.
All of this is totally free!
