Dear Jane Blocks Page 24

DJ LS2

LS2 is another block I felt needed to be redrafted. I suspect that Jane wanted the central motif to be a diamond. At first I wanted to make the base the same angle as the main triangle, but it ended up looking better at the same angle as the diamond. The rest of the block fell into place after that.

DJ LS12


All of the squares in this block are the same size. The top triangle and the base half-square triangle are the only exceptions. Though it might look confusing LS12 goes together easily if you remember to sew in rows on that base triangle: first one side then the other.

DJ L10


I just "didn't get" L-10. I still don't. I don't know what Jane was trying to do with her design. It looks cluttered and has strange angles. To me it doesn't look like a Naiad (sorry Nan!) I used a combination of piecing and applique. Maybe were I to see the original block, I could tell what she was up to. Until then, I'll have to be satisfied with this.

DJ D4


As I've said before, I'm at the point where I'm finishing off rows. D4, which I could have done earlier, polishes off row D. I think I'm getting better with the applique leaves, although probably I should be an expert now with the number of them Jane included in this quilt!

DJ BLC


This is the third of the four corners. The last one, which is actually the easiest, will have to wait until I know how many pieces I've used in the quilt. This one looks complicated, but it isn't really. Just remember it's a variable star inside another one. Instead of looking at the star points, try to construct it using Flying Geese and it will go together without much struggle. I carefully labelled the other pieces in the seam allowance to be sure I knew which were which and their orientation.

DJ TR6


I try not to think of how close I am to completing the blocks. I've stretched them out by using what I have come to call the "2 by 2" method. I cut out two blocks and two triangles. Then, when I've put them together, I cut another "2 by 2". I'm getting near the end of unique fabric for the triangles in TR6. Time for the second round soon.

DJ C7


This is the last of row C: C7. There's alot of bulk under those small diamonds, I don't know how I'm going to quilt this. I may not have the pointiest applique diamonds either, but now I'm almost used to them...Baltimore Album blocks next? Who knows.

DJ M3


Somehow I stopped work on M3 for several weeks. I thought I had cut out the entire block but when I finished the center "medallion" I found myself short 3 outside pieces. I could have sworn I cut them, so I put the block aside until I found them...I never did. The list of blocks needed to complete the quilt is in the single digits, so I decided to wait no more and just cut three more. I still feel like a flake about it, though.
