    Dear Jane - 4 more C's

    C7 - C10. Very happy with inside (diamond) rows of C7. C8 had very flat center seams because I pressed them open but lo, I reversed the fabrics!! Seeing as I was using a charm square, I just made another small center and appliqued it over the original. Not bad! Also needed to make the outer triangles of larger fabric but if I'm really careful I can still get enough for a seam allowance when I join the blocks. Thank heaven for Fray Check. First picture of it is wrong! Love doing reverse applique more than "normal" as in C9!

    Kitsie you are such a natural at this! Appliqué over the mistake certainly sounds just right for this project.

    Thank you all so much for enjoying them! You might check back every few years to see my progress! If and when I do finish the quilt, I'm going to feel so sorry! Each one is like doing one little quilt and gives a lot of satisfaction. I have a spreadsheet I did in Microsoft Excel into which I paste my pictures and its fun to fill in the squares.

    Filling in the squares on your spreadsheet is almost like completing a puzzle, huh? I am so enjoying following your progression. I can't tell you how much pleasure your Dear Jane has brought me. Thanks for sharing and please continue to show us your progression.
