    Dear Jane - "H"ere we go with Row H

    I started in the center so I could line them up on the big wall... If I've already posted a couple of these, my apologies. In order they are H1, H2, H3...H6 & H7.
    H3 is a little wonky and H6 is one of the hardest I've done. Tried many ways before I went with the instructions on That Quilt .com

    Did I ask what size these are? If not, what size. They strike me as small, too small! They sure are darling. I think you are getting to some difficult blocks. I'm curious to see just how difficult they get before you finish! Thanks for the updates.

    Hi Kitsie,

    How often do you work on these? Do you have other projects going at the same time? If someone spent their time only working on a Dear Jane, how long do you think it would take to finish just the piecing. I might want to try one sometime but would like to finish it before I'm too old to see.

    Better start now, Kitsy! I was doing a king sized quilt when I started this. Just the hand q'ting on some of it and the binding and it was nice to have the 2 different things going.

    I average one block a day and love the variety of techniques from machine piecing, paper piecing and hand applique. I would hope to never finish it!! LOL

    "Flower", they end up finished at 4 1/2". For the full story of this remarkable quilt go to www.dearjane.com I am one of many, many that have enjoyed making this quilt or some part of it! Some choose the "easier" blocks to do and may enlarge them. Me-being-me I go from A-1 to M13 with the border triangles being done along the way! Thanks for looking!
