Dear Jane Quilt Blocks
Dear Jane Blocks Page 15

DJ E5

It's my opinion that Jane didn't WANT all those points to meet up in the center and that's why she appliqued that circle there. I had more trouble with this block than I should have and ended up cutting out the pieces by putting freezer paper down and then using my rotary cutter and ruler. Unfortunately, this meant that I have bias on the outside edges of another square.

DJ TR3

I am working on the easier triangles first. This one is all straight seams, but the central squares are slightly narrower than the outside ones. I took a roadtrip up to Keepsake Quilting in NH because I was obsessing over the fact that I might not have enough William Morris fabric to complete the quilt. It's only about a 2 hour drive. I came back with 8 new quarters...and MAYBE this will be enough.

DJ M9

In addition to all the new William Morris fabrics, I found new colorways of some of the Sturbridge Village fabrics I had been using to supplement. M9 is actually much easier than it looks. You can piece all the blocks into triangles, then into squares. It becomes a 2-patch with a border.

DJ L6

L6 is called Maze of Madness in the book. I usually don't pay attention to the names since the really reflect Brenda and her classes and I'm not "in" on the jokes for most of them. This one, however, is very appropriately named. You have a real sense of accomplishment when it's done.

DJ M6

The contrast in this brown William Morris fabric is greater than the original. The challenge of M6 is all in the center with the squares meeting the octagon, leaving all those inset seams, but I must be improving because I think it came out pretty well.

DJ A2

The Christmas line of William Morris fabrics have gold on them. I wasn't sure if I should use them or not since the gold lines make the darker fabrics look like they've been printed "off". The lighter ones, like this red, look great. I had been putting off doing A2 because I wasn't sure if I wanted to piece it the way Brenda had drawn it, or redraw it to look more like the block Jane had done. In the end, I redrew it which gives more option in how to piece it.

DJ I11

This is a new colorway from the Sturbridge Village prints. Once again, I pieced in the diamonds instead of appliqueing them, as drawn in the book.

DJ A12

I want to finish a row. I've decided the one that's doable is row A, so even though A12 contains the smallest pieces I've worked with so far, I decided it's time to confront it. You know, by now, that it boils down to a pieced 9-patch on point, don't you?
