Dear Jane Quilt Blocks
Dear Jane Blocks Page 7

DJ K1

I started K1 before i8, but I had packed the fabric prior to moving before I realized I forgot to cut the borders. I had a bit of a "duh" moment when I kept thinking it was too small before I realized there was more to it. With all the squares, triangles and rectangles, this block could have been confusing if I hadn't laid out the pieces on the page of the book. No way could I do it from memory.

DJ e3

I love this kind of pinwheel quilt, but I'm never happy with the center. This time for E3, I managed to get the bulk spread out in the back, but I don't think the triangles quite meet up in the center. This was a fairly easy block except for that consideration.

DJ F13

With "prepared" applique, you can get really nicely round circles. Unfortunately, the pointy ends of the melons also tend to get rounded. F13 was a fairly "simple" applique block. In the picture of Jane's quilt, her pieces actually look to be closer together, but this is as close as I could get them. They graze the outside 1/4" seam allowance, which makes me a little nervous.

DJ A7

Another applique block which I "prepared" the applique pieces in advance. Brenda P. has drawn A7 in such a way that the melons touch in the center. I liked Jane's version with a little space. The melons are the same size for several of the appliqued blocks, so if you are using a template, keep it around for a while.

DJ G11

I thought the diamonds in G11 would be simpler than the round and melon-shaped applique pieces in the recent blocks, but I couldn't figure out how to prepare the diamonds without leaving the template inside after it was sewn, so I tried to applique them with the template on top and wasn't having any luck until my mom went over appliqueing points. By the last one I got the hang of it, but some of the others really show my inexperience.

DJ L12

I was working on L12 in the hospital when my room-mate was undergoing some tests. It's not really that hard except for the tiny half square triangles on the borders, which are applique. I think they would have been more consistent (not to mention less bulky) if they had been pieced.

DJ L7

L7 is easy if you think of the center square as a square-on-point, and the rest of the block as one big 9-patch. It seems so spacious when you compare it to some of the ones I've just done.

DJ K8

I was being so careful about bias up until K8. I don't know if it was simply that I cut it out late and night or simply didn't think, but, like Jane's, the strips are cut on the straight of grain leaving the edges almost entirely on the bias. I also noticed that while Brenda drew the outside triangles as log cabin-like, the outside-most strips of the color fabric is actually mitered on Jane's quilt. If you're having trouble figuring out how to piece this block, just remember to work from the outside in.
