The backing fabric is fun as well.
10 years or so ago a lot of people I know were making 'Dear Jane' Quilts. I loved the patterns but couldn't see myself using similar fabrics or making so many blocks but I wanted to get into the fun so I decided to be 'Naughty'... yes yes... I know it's not the first time.
Anyway I had some lovely bright hand dyed fabrics and I was into black at the time so I decided to use these colours to make my blocks... then I had another naughty idea! Instead of piecing the blocks I would applique them so they would look similar but they just weren't!
I did have fun making the number of blocks I ended up making and I still love the quilt which sits on the back of one of my couches in my sitting room and if 3 1/2 boys are very good they can keep warm during their afternoon nap on a couch instead of going upstairs to their room (read Daddy's old room).
I did a grab and took this photo below from Craftsy... this is what the real 'Dear Jane' looks like.
