DJ K13

K13 is one of those blocks that I feel "prove" that the simpler blocks build up your skills for the most complex ones. This one combines an outer star, like F7 and an interior 9-patch, like M10.

DJ E1

E1 is actually an easier version of A7. Once again, I decided to use prepared applique, and the downside was that the ends of the "melons" are rounded slightly. I also suggest you start in the center rather than on an edge. I think if I had done that, I could have had them all meet perfectly in the middle.

DJ 10

I don't generally go back over the blocks I've posted, but, when I posted page 9, I was very excited that I had done over 70. After a recount, I discovered I had posted one on two different pages, so now I am replacing the duplicate with C10 and I can go back to being glad I've completed over 70.

DJ G2

This is my least favorite block so far. It's not that G2 is complicated. A "broken dishes" type block is surrounded by half-square triangles. I just think it's ugly. In Brenda's book, the entire thing is drafted as half-square triangles. I don't know that it is an improvement. Ugh.

DJ K6

On the other hand, K6, is kind of cool. I have developed a fondness for thin strips (something I never thought I'd say when doing some of the earlier blocks.) Obviousl K6 is an X-block with a border. I think it's elegant.

DJ D10

I was looking for a challenge and D10 fit the bill. It's not that the block is that hard conceptually since it's basically a four-patch with a couple of borders, but there is a substantial amount of bias edges in small pieces to work with. I really like how it came out, though. Pressing should take case of some of the wobbles.

DJ  B2

I decided to work on some of the curved pieces. They are actually a little less intimidating than getting the seams to butt correctly. Once again, I have a kind of "off-center center, but in real life, it looks acceptable.

DJ C6

My mom and dad came to visit and I showed them what I had done with with quilt so far. It's weird when you're an adult showing your parents stuff you've done. It sort of reduces you back to being 10, and them when they do like it, you become your correct age again. Anyway, during the discussion, Mom mentioned she had some William Morris prints that I didn't and sent me this one which I used for C6.
