Jane Stickle Quilt: I-5

Block number/name: I-5 “Maria’s Majesty”

Date completed: August 25, 2009

Number of pieces: 6

Notes on block: My friend gifted me with more green fabric yesterday! (Thank you, Evelyn!!!) When I saw this block posted on That Quilt, I knew exactly what fabric I wanted to use. I just love how the little elephant is framed in the center. I started by reverse appliquéing the outside frame, then I did the melons in the center. I think it worked out pretty well.

Last night (just before I started working on this block) I went and saw the movie Julie and Julia with some of the moms in my neighborhood (Mom’s Night Out!). So much fun! Now I really need to get my paws on a copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking!


  1. Holy cow, that was quick!! :-)

  2. I loved the movie too. I had read both books and it was fun too see them made into a movie.
    Be prepared for sticker shock on MTAOFC though. I want one too.

  3. Ooh! I really like this one! What kind of green fabrics are you looking for? I might have a few sitting around if you want some...

  4. WOW!
    That look fantastic. Sew, sew, pretty.

  5. I like this block. The elephant is cute. I keep hearing good things about the movie. You will pay big bucks for one of those books now.

  6. I took another one of those unexpected craft breaks. I am behind again on Dear Jane. Your block looks great. This was the last block I did do. (early because I needed the perfect block for an elephant fabric. :) )

  7. Love the elephant in the center!
