Dear Jane Blocks Page 28

DJ LS4

As I go along, I find fewer and fewer triangles that are pieced. LS4 is a combination of piecing and applique. The top half is pieced, and the bottom appliqued. Just to be complicated, I threw in a pieced curve in the mix. If I had to do it over again, I'd probably applique that part.

DJ LS9


You could do LS9 as a simple applique, but I pieced the bottom like Jane did. She may have done that to use up some smaller scraps of muslin, or because she didn't have enough big pieced for the whole triangle. I did it because it made placing the applique easier. The pieced circle is just under that horizontal seam and at the top of the bottom triangle. The middle melon piece hits each of the triangle seams.

DJ LS1


I should be used to tiny pieces after doing all the blocks in the quilt, but the triangles seem to have larger bits. LS1 is the exception. I revised this triangle somewhat. I made the angles rights and 45s and tried to make the strips in the top the same width (it didn't work.) Aside from that, since this triangle was all pieced it actually went together fairly quickly.

DJ TR13


How did I miss this easy one? TR13 has big pieces, is mostly pieced and has only two melon appliques (although I also decided to applique the HST flanking the darker melon.)

DJ TR7


I must have redrawn TR7 ten times trying to get the angles to be reasonable. It ended up being very similar to Brenda's draft with a few alteration (including the 60 degree triangles on the sides of the center "wedge" triangle. I did keep the angles on the top two diamonds the same, but I don't know if it was worth the effort. It looks the same.

DJ LS5


LS5 was another triangle I tried to redraw and realised that this is really the only way you can do it. It's all pieced, except for the small equilateral triangle at the top and the semi-circle which looks to be "sitting" on some "legs." I am slowing down in my construction of these last triangles to piece the sashing on the blocks, which is now my "take along" project when my room-mate goes for physical therapy.

DJ BR9


Thanksgiving and I cut out a few more triangles, but only BR9 actually got pieced. I'm trying to make a number of presents because I just can't afford to buy things for people. Also, I came to the conclusion that we all just have too much STUFF. It's all very nice stuff, but there certainly seems to be alot of it. When I'm working on other projects, I always seem to want to work on this one, too. When I'm not, I can't seem to make any progress at all. *sigh*

DJ BRC


I was going to leave the bottom row corner 'til last, but when I was trying to figure out how many pieces I used so I could do the embroidery I realized I was going to have to wait until I pieced together the entire top so I could also count the the scalloping (which could add a couple or alot more pieces depending on how I decide to do it.)

DJ RS3


Slipping in under the wire! I just wanted to finish the triangles before the end of the yea, but New Years Day morning found me stitching the three top diamonds. My thought about RS3 was to piece the center of the circle, and then applique the melons on top to hold the pieced square in place. I found this solution a little bulky and I don't think I would recommend it.
