Dear Jane Blocks and Camouflage Quilt

 I did manage to do a set in seam on this one! Maybe there is hope for my sewing skills - lol!
 Lots of appliqué to keep from piecing the curves.
 More applique . . .
and even more. Whoops, I see a tiny bit of red bleeding. May have to redo this block or at least try rinsing it again.
 This quilt was made for a special young man.
 I purchased the fabric on a Friday morning and made this quilt over the weekend.
 It was washed and to UPS by Monday afternoon.
 What a fun quilt to make and surprise a young man with some of his favorite interests on the quilt.
He was thrilled and I had the joy of making it for him! The pattern is Triple Treat Petite from Atkinson Designs book, Happy Hour. I resized the blocks to 12" for the size quilt I wanted to make.

Your sewing skill are as close to perfect as I have seen. Love all the red DJ blocks. Try some Synthrapol or a color catcher for the bleeding.
