Dear Jane Quilt Blocks
Rimfire's Redrafts of Jane's Blocks - Rows F, G & H

DJ E11The differences between my draft of F10 and Brenda's are fairly subtle.

Unless the photo was cropped in, I thought the outer bars on the edge were too thin and there appeared to be an extra one (probably of the background fabric.) Each of these are 5/8" wide.

The corner diamonds are "perfect diamonds" meaning that all 4 edges are the same length. In the book, the inner edges are wider than the outer ones making the two acute angles different measurements.

I also constructed this as a pieced block, where before, the corner diamonds appeared to be appliqued.

Another redraft which is fairly subtle.

The inside of G2 is made of quarter square triangles instead of the entire block being made of half-square triangles.

Admittedly, you could strip piece HST, and get the same effect, but I didn't like the bulk of the HST, and I doesn't look like the center of Jane's is made up of HST.

I took a leaf from D6 and made G12 a perfect octogon.

In addition, I pieced the central motif by using 4 points pieced into another 4-pointed figure (sort of a square with concave sides.

The thing to remember about H3 is that it reduces itself down to a 9-patch.

The 4 corner squares are easy enough to figure out as are the two side "flying geese," the other other two "flying geese" are simply stripped with 1/4" (finished) background strip in this draft where before they are just sort of "floating on the edge."

The center is the same as Brenda's draft.

The only difference between my H5 and that in the book is that the alternate quarters of the quarter-square triangles are "birds in the air" unit consisting of 3 background half-square triangles and one focus fabric half-square triangle each.

I put my version of H6 in as a cautionary tale. It is MUCH harder than either Brenda's or Janes.

In the photo of Jane's orginal quilt, it looked like at least one of the corners was pieced. Evidently Jane gave this up as a bad idea. Unfortunately, I didn't.

You could probably get the same effect by quilting, or you could piece the circles as two-patches, and then cut the circle applique from that and apply to the block.

Once again, this is a minor change from the book. H9 is smaller in the book because there are some side blocks added. I do not know if the photo was cropped, but I saw no reason to make the figure smaller than necessary.

I also enlarged the diamonds and moved them out slightly from the center (and away from the bulk.) These diamonds are the same angle as the center part of the kites, and 7/8" along each edge.
