Dear Jane Quilt Blocks
Dear Jane Blocks Page 1

DJ A1

My first Dear Jane block: A1. I made the mistake of starting at the very beginning of the book with a block that has a billion tiny little pieces... I'm surprized it came out okay at all.

DJ I13


I discovered that blocks with larger pieces allow you to see those wonderful William Morris prints I fell in love with. You will see this kind of block pop up again and again in the quilt.

DJ A1


This block was the first of the William Morris Greens I worked on. Since I am stitching the quilt by hand, the inset seams and the odd angles of H4 were not difficult. I believe they would be a bit trickier using a machine.

DJ I13


The simple 9-patch point on point in I2 gave me enough courage to try my luck with more applique and some curved piecing.

DJ I3


I3 is also sort of 9-patch, but with the thin sashing, it looks like a tic-tac-toe board. The thin lines between the squares take some getting used to, as well as the pressing for them (which is why mine seem wavy.)

DJ J4


An unfortunate side effect of the lighter William Morris prints, especially this green, is that they don't seem to have much contrast with the creams I have chosen as the background. I'm not quite sure whether or not I like the "embossed" effect created in this J4, or if I'm going to remake this block with a darker fabric.

DJ K7


K7 is the second block I worked on and the first after reading the Baby Janes discussion on the quilting site. I'm just not an appliquer, I guess. I went back to the picture and broke the block into four, as Jane Stickle looks to have done, just because I was afraid the block would look blobby. I don't know if piecing was all that great an improvement.

DJ D3


D3 shows why I am reluctant to do many of the applique blocks. I'm not sure if it's the smaller background size that makes me uncomfortable, or simply that I need more practice.
