Confessions of a Dear Jane cheater

Thursday, April 10, 2008

I'm up to 12 blocks and this means that I'm staying up with the pack. I've been looking at other people's Dear Jane blocks and concluded that mine aren't so bad. In fact I'm ok with them.

Well most of them. These are my last 4 that I've completed. The one on the far left I cheated on. There were supposed to be paper pieced diagonal stripes in the light area on each corner. Well I decided I didn't want to do that so I used a striped fabric to faux the stripes in the block. It doesn't trick anyone but its my B-4 block and I'm sticking with it. The one on the far right I am proud to say I didn't have to paper piece and it turned out pretty darn good. Hey these are small blocks people! This is not beginning quilting 101.

And this one I'm very proud of. Its a clover that is appliqued and pieced together. And all my seams match perfectly. Tah Dah!

This is the gray I'm sashing the blocks with above. My intent when I started on this project and is still my goal - to complete as many blocks as possible and stretch my skills into an area I wouldn't normally delve into. I doubt very much I'll complete all the blocks but I'm ok with that. Being involved with the Dear Jane group is just like taking an online quilting class. I'm pretty proud of myself - nanette
