    Thanks for showing that Cindy! not only is the block WOW perfect - great job!!!
    you helped me make up my mind about what to do with mine... you may notice I only sewed those background 2 1/2" squares to one side [the other side is only pinned in place] I'm going to attach background to the other sides of the middle so that I can recapture that diagonal miter seam - the points are so much better looking, secure, and easier to make!

    Gus and Cindy, I ended up doing sort of a hybrid of both of yours. I appliqued the triangles and tucked the ends into the diagonal seams. The wobbly center is still somewhat of a problem, but hopefully that'll "quilt out".

    ... I hear ladies and I fear for my life! Hahaha!
    It seems basic Chinese to my ears at this time I'm not immersed in DJ!
    But I'm that "evil child of I-10" when the time comes!
    For now... today only I show them some pictures of my day to steal the smile! I'm testing my other birthday gift, a new camera!
    A big hug!

    everyone's blocks are beautiful. i'm trying to get my 2nd jane done. 3 kites to go, and a couple tri's to sew the applique on. i did RS10, RS6, and darn, didn't put the number on the other one. the RS one with the circle in the middle and 3 tri's on the top.
    did i ever share my orginal jane pictures with you that i took a couple years ago? would you like to see them. not individual pic's but sections. and my camera got them real clear.

    anyone have any suggestions of how to show you these pic's without uploading each one? i am really not that good at this.
    the orginal was in mint condition. it had never been used. there were only about 3 discoloration/age darkening spots on it.

    F8, H11 and I10 look like they're made out of the same fabric!
    Also when I post my G8 in a while [gotta take those pictures!] you can see it looks like a clear repro of her F-7....awesome! thanks sewNso

    Wow!! last post was mine... so I can show you exactly what I mean by my G8 fabric looking like Jane's!
    Here are blocks H5 [wk of Dec 16] and G8 [wk of Oct 14.....really???] I paper pieced the top and bottom triangles that contain four pieces and then simply measured the rest. G8 I used EPP. I did have to do just a little reverse sewing to one of the corners and setting triangles because when I thought I was done a few days ago and put my Jane square on top to trim it, I realized I would be chopping off a couple of points, so I removed a corner square and setting triangle to 'readjust' it.

    OK... so I reverse-sewed EVERYTHING!!! and very carefully too, because I had only a 10" square of this print and I had fussy cut every point and square so it would have some green... the majority of the print was a large red flower. I had to wash out all blue fabric marker, dry and press...

Size:  100.8 KBI guess I shouldnt have said "everything" because as you see I kept those outer sections containing the print squares intact. I traced the block from the book, cut out an 'under section' and marked the top edge of the square and cut a little window there so that I could line up each section evenly. I wanted a little more space above the little squares, so my mark is not in the same spot as the book, but I think a little closer to Jane's perhaps. I will have a little background at the outer edge as well - just not a lot.

    I used fabric marker to mark all sewing lines at the upper/inner edges of those under sections and carefully trimmed exactly 1/4" from the edge. Meanwhile, I also carefully traced the center square directly onto the wrong side of my fabric and sewed the points on, starting and stopping exactly at the corners of the square.Name:  DJ I10e.jpg

    OOOPs - so sorry thought I had taken a picture of the markings on the under sections and cuts - but I think you can get enough from all other photos to know what I mean...
    I next started to machine sew the individual short sections. I also noticed that it really is difficult to get precisely into the corners and the final miters coming out of the points toward the corners of the block. I will sew these by hand later. Here is what I've done so far... I do think it will work! It is a kind of 'faux-thatquilt.com'Name:  DJ I10f.jpg

    You can see I pointed the seam ripper to show my inner corner is not quite finished! But it looks like the finished product will lie flat and I even think it has a bit of the same 'flavor' as Jane's.

    The blocks assigned for this week on the schedule are BRC - our first kite! and LS1. I checked out both the thatquilt.com and Aunt Reen sites. Their instructions are similar. I do intend to applique the melon flower and reverse applique the small one on the kite - the embroidered info will have to wait until Jane is done [should have been as diligent as Gladys about keeping my piece info!] As for LS1, I will definitely paperpiece. One of the sites did not have the Y-seam - I think I will avoid it as well. Hope to have something more to show in the next day or so!
