Dear Jane Blocks Page 26

DJ E11

After my long delay, I started having problems with concentrating. Thinking this was yet another problem related to my insomnia, I finally went to the doctor. She and I were both surprized to discover I was hypothyroid. After only a couple of days on hormones, I'm now my normal, frentic self and LS10 is the result. I modified it from the drawing in the book. All the angles except the top triangle are right angles. The top is the same angle as the triangle itself.

BR12 is also modified from the book. I noticed in Jane's quilt, the pieced diamond extended into the bottom background triangles. Originally, I though of applique-ing it, but it ended up being easier to piece. It's nice to be able to sit and do three things at once again.

I like the way BR6 turned out. I redrafted it to make all the "flanking triangles" right triangles, and I noticed the center triangle came to a point on Jane's quilt, so I tried to do that as well. The top quardrilateral with 1/4" strip is also different from the draft in the book, but I think it balances the 1/4" strip surrounding the big triangle.

DJ J10


I tried to "straighten" out of the lower arcs that make up the big base triangle in RS10, but the result just looked so funky that I think Jane meant it to be curved slightly. The other triangles are all 60 degrees since I thought using a consistant angle would make the final block look more balanced.

TR4 gave me problems in the redraft. I knew that I wanted the straight strips to be all one width (in this case, 1/2") but the triangles were all sort of odd angles. I finally managed to turn them into right triangles, but it made the final triangle at the top smaller than in Jane's original.

DJ TR6


BR5 is the only triangle I had done "before." I did it for the quilt the Dear Jane mailinglist made for President Bush, but then I made it by machine. I think it was actually easier by hand, although some of my points may not have turned out quite so pointy.

DJ I5


I should keep better records, or at least update them once in a while. My paper record showed that I had not done LS13, and I thought "how could I have put off such an easy one." Well, the paper record was wrong, so it was with great frustration that I continued on to this one, TR11. The angles fought me and the points fought me and, even though it should have been easy, with all straight seams, I'm glad it's done. Maybe I'll use the left over LS13 on the back.

DJ M3


The biggest problem I have with some of Brenda's patterns is that I feel that Jane did not mean to do as many odd angles or shapes as appear in the drafts in the book. This one is a perfect case. The angles are all right angles and the there are at least 4 HST and two Flying Geese, but not unless you redraft it. Maybe I'm still grumpy for the LS13 debacle. Maybe my doctor needs to up my Levoxyl dosage.
