    Dear Jane - C's the day! C1, C2, C3

    Back to some easier piecing! Used Freezer paper for accuracy on the first two. Don't really know why on the instructions I found on the internet that C-3 seemed to cause problems!

    For that one I cut 2" strips out of my background and focus fabrics and sewed about 24" together. I then cut these joined strips into 2" sections for the 4-patch and the rectangles that join them. It was a simple matter to sew 2 of the rectangles into the center square, sew (2) 4-patch to each end of the other 2 rectangles and join these to the other two sides to complete the block. (Did have to block mine a little)

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    I love seeing your progression. Some day, some day, maybe, I'll also be a Dear Jane girl! Thanks for sharing.

    Sure. Learned it a long time ago, I think from Sharon Schamber. I just use foam core board and draw the block size on it (plus a few more lines to help). Use liquid starch in a spray bottle (mine is diluted) to pretty much soak the thing and either stretch it a bit to make it bigger or scrunch it in to make smaller. The starch will make it keep its shape for when you sew it into your quilt. Its a great help!
    Here's the only other one I've had to do!
