    Ok I think that I am figuring out this signature block. We would make a block out of the material we are using and then share it with everyone on the list. Then we will take these squares and use them for our backing. Is this correct?
    If so, then I am in. I think that I would find it fun to make one for everyone on the list. But I also understand that this is something in the thinking stage and will not be actual until after summer or later????? Right???

    What an interesting idea to use 3 colors that way. I love the way they look like that! Wow

    Nicely done!

    Thanks Jeanine.

    I had not noticed that it really did look "wonky", I just thought it was due to the age and quilting. But now that I look at it closely, I see exactly what you did. I think I'll make mine wonky also. In the DJ book, they give a little picture of the actual block. I think I'll use my copier at work and enlarge it to the appropriate side - and use that for foundation piecing. Thanks for catching that!

    You are right, the block in the book is not like Jane's original block. That inner pinwheel square is NOT square. I got my colors mirrored, but I was pretty happy with how the block looks compared to Jane's original.[/QUOTE]

    Here is an A-1 Block similar to Jane's original that I made in EQ7. Please let me know if you want more info on what I did.

    So many ways to do A1 -- I think I will do that again. At the rate I keep changing my mind, I will never get this done. But someone said that the journey is more fun than arriving at the end.

    You're correct, of course. The very center is not square. However, leaving off the 4 outer triangles, the rest is a square on point. This center square is made up of 8 triangles, four like this and four exchanging the colors

    I am so glad I had not yet make A1! I love the look of it being wonky vs being "square". Thanks to everyone who noticed it as I would have just followed the pattern without looking to closely to the block itself. Can't wait to get some free time to be able to do this one!

    Week three!
    I was really dreading the one with the reverse applique as I have never done that before. It looked a lot harder than it actually was. I enjoyed doing it. Great to learn a new technique!

    I love all the variations in color everyone is putting up. Makes me want to start about 10 more Dear Janes!
