Dear Jane Block A-4 Courtney’s Stethoscope June 21, 2011

On Saturday, my friend April and I met at her house to work on our Dear Jane blocks.  We are both terribly behind where we are supposed to be.  We have been meeting once a month to work on our blocks, to try to catch up.  We have decided that we need to meet more often.  We are also going to try working on a block everyday and post on facebook what we have worked on.  So far, so good. (We’ve only been doing it for two days 🙂

I only finished one block when we were together. It is block A-4, Courtney’s Stethoscope.  It really wasn’t that hard of a block.  It took me about two hours to complete it because all of the pieces are cut out with scissors instead of using a rotary cutter.  I’m looking forward to working at least a little bit on the blocks everyday.  I may even get caught up by the end of the summer.  I’m only about 60 blocks behind where we are supposed to be.
