Finish It Up Friday ~ Calamity Jane!

I finished her off!

  
It is with great relief that I present to you, Calamity Jane. 

 
Her piecing is humble. 

 
  
Her quilting is simple. 

   
And she did not want to cooperate for pictures. 

 
Rebellious child.

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    I love how Jane turned out. Talk about lemons into lemonade! You might find that sometimes your rebellious child can be the most charmingly! LOL

    Fabulous looking quilt, with enough sass and spunk to keep you on your toes. Bravo for finishing her!

    She’s lovely! Hugs,

    Lovely Calamity Jane. I like the block with the curves. I’m going to have to get brave and try making a block with curves. Avery blessed new year to you.

    one of the things I don’t like about the original Dear Jane is that it is overwhelming to look at. Your Calamity is peaceful & allows me to more opportunity to appreciate these extraordinary blocks. I would happily live with your version

    But the rebellious ones are the children we love most, aren’t they? Beautiful finish; well done.

    Rebellious but beautiful!

    Calamity Jane has a personality..and I love it!!!

    I think this is wonderful. The fabric you used for the alternating blocks says “vintage prairie” all over it. I definitely couldn’t have gotten this far on it!
