    the original jane quilt is referred to by row and number because its 225 blocks and thats just too many names to remember.

    the row are A-M and the numbers are 1-13 for the center blocks.

    the border triangles are Top Row (TR), Right Side (RS), Left Side (LS), and Bottom Row (BR) and the numbers are also 1-13.

    so in this case, BR1, its Bottom Row Triangle Number 1.

    the kites (corner units in the border) Top Left Corner (TLC), Top Right Corner (TRC), Bottom Left Corner (BLC), Bottom Right Corner (BRC).

    They are just adorable! Love the stark contrast in your mini. There's something so pleasing about the preciseness of the blocks in mini size. Color and perfection appeal to me as it's evident they appeal to you! Thanks for explaining the BR1 as I wasn't familiar w/that; have the DJ patterns in 4" size but haven't made any yet. Thanks for the link also ~ was interesting reading about her family. Always knew her name but not her background. I love knowing the history. You did fantastic on these blocks and we can't wait to see the 46" size quilt ~ I like that size better than 84" anyday!! :thumbup: :thumbup: great job, btw! Merry Xmas!!

    here's a link to the original jane quilt, its an interesting quilt made during a very difficult time in our countries history.

    Thanks Klue--will check the site. I do lots of mini's, but don't pp. Smallest width I use is 3/4 inch to finish 1/4 inch. Made some Christmas ornaments with a 3/4" nine patch set on point. Will post pics after I take the small tree down in January.
    i can't wait to see the pics of your minis.

    this is my first attempt at doing anything on such a small scale.
    I have 5 postings of mini's. Check my list of topics and you will find them-mini ornaments, fall mini's and then 3 sets of my first pics posted. Think these are 1/2" finished squares and triangles.
