Poor Neglected Jane

After many moths of neglecting my Dear Jane quilt I finally got some blocks put together for the July meeting.

Here are each of my blocks.  The Star block was a bit of a challenge, but the method we used for the center was to fold a little square in half which worked out wonderfully.

I did have a bit of a hard time getting one of the background pieces lined up correctly when paper piecing the star.  After ripping out three times I grabbed a 6″ width of fabric strip, placed the paper on top off that and ran it through the machine.  Plenty of room and no wasted fabric  after I trimmed it … how’s that for a new paper piecing method!
