I sewed more Dear Jane blocks today. I think half the fun for me is to take the horrible directions that my friends have and figure out easier ways to do them. They took the class from a woman who believed that every block was better if you could figure a way to get some hand applique into it. Not me.


These are blocks D-12 and M-5. The orange and white I converted from piecing and applique to paperpiecing. It may have been faster to applique since I had a heck of a time getting them to line up but it is the principle of the matter! I’m calling M-5 “Pink Dachshunds on Parade.”

This is my Picasso block. It is made from a Laurel Birch cat fabric. I love the way the eyes are peeking out of the corners.
