1800s DJ blocks

Here is what I decided to do with my Dear Jane blocks made with 1800s red and blue repro fabrics... :o) The upper left hand corner one is mine, and the rest will be gifts... I'm going to do hand quilting across the sashing strips and then make them into little wallhangings. They'll measure about 15" square when they're done -- hhhmmm... Maybe they should be pillows? I'll have to think about this a little more... :o)

These are going to be some lovely little quilts. I'd say go with small quilts, rather than pillows, but then I'm not much of a pillow person. A little quilt can be a wallhanging, or a table topper, or a mantle decoration. It's so versatile.

That looks like a fun project!

Or, you could do what I did, and have your husband make frames for them!

Those are beautiful. I would love to start a DJ quilt one day.
