Dear Jane Quilt Blocks
Dear Jane Blocks Page 27

DJ RS6

The "theme" of triangle RS6 seems to be "baby blocks," and like the Baby Blocks quilt, there's quite a bit of inset seams. I'm down to using the fabrics just once more each. I'm actually surprized that I have some left. More of some than of others.

DJ LS8


LS8 is a combination of piecing and applique. I think I am resigned to the fact that the tips of my melons will never be sharp. I redrew the "Star Trek" insignia in the center (surrounded by the "W".) I guess it's actually an arrowhead, but it just makes me giggle to think that Jane came up with the Star Fleet badge before Gene Roddenberry had even been thought of.

DJ BR8


If I had been piecing BR8 by machine, I would have been tempted to do the center motif as a square-on-point surrounded by half-square triangles and then cut to fit. I decided to try and finish this on Sunday, before cutting out a bunch of triangles to work on during jury duty. I probably shouldn't have rushed. It might have made more sense and I wouldn't have had to rip it out the several times I ended up doing so.

DJ RS2


I always get these as mirror images because I trace the pieces out on the back of the fabric. This one will probably always remind me of Poirot, Agatha Christie's detective, which was on when I sat down "for just a minute" and worked on this triangle. Kind of made a weird sense when I finished it at the Lowell Superior Courthouse.

DJ RS9


Jury duty in Lowell is a "one day, one trial" so I was hoping I didn't get a lengthy trial and would only have to show up the one day. I was early because my last call to Jury duty was in Cambridge and there's no parking there. It was a good thing that I was a half an hour early. I've been keeping my pieces in metal times so the scanner guy shot my purse through the metal detector about 5 times. RS9.

DJ RS12


They sent us home while I was working on RS12. Lowell is a small courthouse and only three trials were happening: two civil and one criminal. The civil both settled out of court very early in the morning. The defendent in the criminal trial waived a jury trial. All that prep and worry for nothing!

DJ BR10


Home from jury duty with still some blocks to sew. It's kind of weird to watch the "anniversary" stuff of 9/11 while still working on this quilt. Last year I was still only on the blocks. BR10 didn't come out as nicely as I'd hoped. I think I cut a couple pieces wrong and sort of "eased" them in. When I finish, I think I'll look over everything and see if I still want to remake any of the blocks or triangles...it's getting very close now.

DJ TR8


As well as the Sept 11 anniversaries, this year in Massachusetts the news is filled with the hotly contested Governor's primaries. They are all starting to "go at it," including the Republican Governor nominee, Romney, who is running unopposed. All his ads are for his "running mate" (unendorsed by the party. They chose another guy...Mass is weird that way) who can't decide if she's fierce or fluffy. On the other hand, the Democrats are all kind of scuffling amongst themselves and the Democratic Lt. Governor nominees are almost indistinguishable from each other, even though one of them is a woman. What a relief to do an "easy" triangle like TR8 amongst this confusion!
