Fast cars, football and pink

 Here it is, my first Dear Jane block. I'm about six blocks behind, but I have it in my mind I can catch up over my vacation next week. Pink is "my favorite and my best" to quote one of my son's favorite story book characters.

I've never been a girlie girl, not at all, really quite the opposite. Growing up I loved sports, cars, and tech gadgets; not that any of these things should have a "gender" but, at least when I was growing up, they did. Today I notice there are girls and "girly" girls, and they both are quite terrific!

Anyway, I STILL like fast cars, football and pink.

Pink is my favorite color! You're making me want to make a pink Baby Jane!

Your block looks terrific! That fabric is just lovely! The little book looks like a wonderful Idea. Are the pages made of felt? like a needle book on a large scale?

Bunny, thanks for the motivation. Notice I made the little book before I made the first block, I'm silly that way. I made the pages from batting scraps; I cut them 6x12 made the cover a bit bigger then sewed down the middle (with my walking foot).
