Dear Jane progress

Here are a couple of Dear Jane blocks I’ve completed in the last couple of weeks.

First up is F-3 Snowball.  This was a good block to show off a lovely William Morris fabric in the centre.  I machine pieced this one.


The second one is C-4 Tic Tac Toe.   I tried out a new to me technique with this one.  I freezer paper pieced the centre part.  I found a great tutorial on ‘The Twiddletail’s Store’ web page here.  I much prefer this method to foundation paper.   I then machined on the first set of triangles, I hand pieced the outer triangles and added them by machine.  3 different methods to complete this block.  I used some Thimbleberries fabric.c-4

I’ve posted these scanned blocks in a bigger size and added a white photograph border after reading some great blog tips on Pleasant Home’s  web post yesterday.    I hope you enjoy them better :-D

Have a great Sunday everyone :)

Hugs and Besitos



  1. Nicely done, and a beautiful block!

  2. The pictures of your new blocks look nice! The second one looks very tricky to do.

  3. They are both beautiful, but, my fav is the second one! Fantastic job!

  4. I love your C4 block. Very precise and well constructed. That's not an easy block at all.

    Happy quilting,

  6. BEAUTIFUL blocks, Elly. I have this one on my redo list. Great job!

  7. Had to stop by again...checked out your DJ picasa photo album. OH MY! It's not to be missed. Fantastic blocks & wonderful fabrics. It's sure to be a gorgeous quilt!
