Dear Jane Blocks Page 22

DJ F6

I'm not sure how Jane did J13, but I pieced the interior corner sections which gave me a guide for placement of the teardrops, which I appliqued. I had a sort of gap of a couple of weeks before working on this block and the ones previous. I'm not sure why. It started out because I was working on another quilt for a friend's daughter and just grew, but now I'm back.

DJ TRC


I redrafted TR5 on a whim. I decided that I wanted to use the same angles as the completed triangle in the little interior triangles, so I used my triangle template as the major tool in the redraft. The top triangle is just a little smaller, with the borders being only 1/4" instead of 1/2".

DJ G12


Once again, I redrafted a block. In the book, G12's center star seems to be appliqued onto a background, but I thought all the ins and outs would be too much for me. I looked closely and it seemed that 4 of the points were pieced onto a center square with concave edges. I also made all the points the same length which, in turn, made the sides of the outside octagon all the same length.

DJ LS7


I'm concentrating on the triangles. With only 15 of the blocks left to go, I thought I'd allow myself the luxury. Which, of course, means no more Triangle Challenge with the Dear Jane mailinglist. LS7 is only slightly redrawn from the book. I made the top two triangles the same angle as the larger triangle but they are the same height as their counterparts in the book. The melons are also the same as are the bottom row of right triangles. Not too much of a challenge, but this triangle did include many of the skills I improved by doing the blocks.

DJ LS6


Despite the bias, LS6 is one of the easier triangles to cut out and sew. All the half-square triangles are the same size in my draft which differs only slightly from Brenda's. The applique, as always, is done after the triangle has been pieced.

DJ RS11


This is another triangle done in strips. I didn't even have to redraw RS11 to figure it out or resize anything, but I should have been more careful pressing since the straight-of-grain ended up on the diagonal which caused some of the seams to press like they were curved. Anyway, things have really slowed down in the Jane department. This could be simply because of the Evil Taxes that are proving my bane, or just that the triangles are harder to cut out than most of the squares.

DJ BR13


I worked on the redraft of BR13 for a while. I wanted to make the bottom, inner triangle the same shape as the final (it's slightly different) and I wanted to make the diamonds the same angle as the main triangle (not even close.) Things just didn't work out. I suppose I'm lucky it all went together smoothly, even if the top triangle looks slighty off...

DJ BR11


With the completion of BR11, I'm up to 20 triangles completed, and if I thought BR13 was a struggle, this one was worse. It shouldn't have been. Once it is cut out, it should go together in diagonal strips except for the base and the top, which are sewn on last. I don't know what I was thinking.
