It's December already, and I really need to work on Christmas gifts every second of the day in order to make all on my list. Despite that impossibility, I have two Dear Jane blocks to share.
|no paper piecing|
These Dear Jane blocks are getting harder and taking a big chunk of my available sewing time. Last week's paper piecing was not pleasant so even though the instructions for today's blocks suggest paper piecing, I went old school. By measuring the block diagrams and adding a quarter inch to each section, I was able to cut and piece without any foundation. Too bad all the blocks won't be that "easy".
Block E-8 made with Liberty of London cotton print from my scrap pile.
The purple print is a Brandon Mably while the background is a Cotton + Steel basic.

I've progressed to 30 blocks so far. I sorted the blocks by color and realized I have a duplicate print. My intention was to use different fabrics (other than the background) in each block which means I will need to remake one. Great....
Thanks for stopping by,
