    Back to my Dear Jane journey

    I wanted to try to catch up with all of my fellow Janiacs, but can't believe I've been paused for nearly 11 months. To catch up will mean that I have to make 3 blocks a day. I tried that, but A10 completely stumped me. It sat there for days. Every time I passed by, I couldn't bring myself to start it. I finally jumped in 4 days after printing out my block. I decided to use thatquilt.com's method http://thatquilt.blogspot.com/2009/01/10.html . Here is my contortion sewing of the frame [I'm using the back of the fabric for the background of this one]

    In the end, it wasn't that hard... just very slow and careful. So, you may remember that I'm doing 3 Janes. Here are A2, A4, and B11

    And here are A10, C12 and B9

    I have closeups of all of them, but they need resizing. So this is all for now.

    I can almost see the logic in doing multiple Janes at the same time ...... almost

    They're great!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    All of your blocks look great. I think it makes sense to make all three at the same time. Good luck. DJ is one of my favorite quilts also.

    thanks to all for your kind comments. yes, making 3 at the same time is more efficient. i want one for my own bed, one for the guest bed, and one to sell to pay for the other two
