Dear Jane J-1..... Josepha's Jonquil

How would you like to be a part of this move with all your earthly possessions you could carry?  This photo is identified as a refugee family fleeing a battlefield area with no place location or date.

This weeks challenge is J-1.  Tips for J-1

A fairly simple applique block....oh, no that "A" word.

Now if you have a very discerning will notice my block is "different."  Oh well, I had the darn thing all stitched up and then looked at the picture and discovered I had stitched the diamonds in the wrong direction.  So you can see I left it and moved on.  In the scheme of things it didn't bother me that much and unless someone has the book in front of them, no one is going to know about it, but YOU and ME!

Well since my block is special....looking at the picture in the book for the quilting lines was not much help for this rogue I just made it up as I went and I love the star shape in the center that showed up!

On this day in 1863 was the battle of Kelly's Ford in Culpepper Co., Virginia.  There is a video link on the site.....listen to it while you stitch on your Jane, it will give your quilt even more meaning and insight to you!
