What’s Going On With Jane

I have been fitting a Jane Block in here and there, so I thought I would post pictures of them.

Jane’s Oak has been done a bit differently.  I machine pieced the bottom instead of appliquéing it, so the white on the sides is missing.

I had a dreadful time with the Parcheesi block after trying to hand piece it and came up with a rebellious melon free solution!

The block is really very similar to its neighbor Deanie’s Daisies when approached this way.  I may still do it the correct way in a year or two!

I was happy with the rest of the blocks and I found the melons in Dad’s Plaids to be very cooperative.  I sprayed the heck out of the fabric with Best Press and then used the needle turn method for both the appliqué and reverse appliqué.  I also used Jenny Haskins Template Magic as a guide for turning the fabric.  That stuff is great because it sticks to the fabric and can be reused a few times.

I did not cut the back out of Poof because the seems for the piecing were not secured so I am afraid they will rip out.  Maybe some fabric glue?  Not sure so I am leaving it as is for now.

I now have 59 blocks done, but am way behind in the group I am doing this with.  I must be about 8 months behind now.  But, I am still getting them done and am pleased with the results, so I am not giving up on this!
