    Hopefully I won't regret this - but I've decided to do a mini jane - 6cm (~2.25in) blocks - using just epp.

    I'll try to post a picture...

    Wish me luck - the middle of b10 is proving quite a challenge.

    More photos to come ...
    Glad to have you joining in the fun!

    Quiltin Nan,
    THREE!!! :-)

    I can see where one can want to make more, especially after seeing everyone else post their great blocks. I keep toying with starting a blue one!

    LOVE IT!!!! BTW - what thread do you use for EPP. I haven't been able to find anything strong enough to withstand dragging over the paper but also hides well. Your stitching is great!

    Wow that is tiny! What would the end size be for that one? There are some real doosies in this quilt so good luck... You almost inspire me to try but that is just soo small.

    Forgot to ask: do you use regular fabrics, or thinner ones such as silk?

    I am intriqued. . .

    Thanks so much for the idea. I hadn't thought of that. I will have to get it out of the trash can and finish it up. It would make a great hostess gift.

    Exclamation

    Here are my blocks for this week. I'm not a 'purist' and am working from the book only, so I don't think I'll worry too much if they are mirror image or not.

    I'm a little nervous to trim to size. I have this nightmare that when I get to the 230th block I'll realize I trimmed 1/4" too short!!

    I just finished the first triangle (not pictured) and trimming that one to size is scary, too. I have the DJ triangle ruler and it shows the 1/4" seam allowance, so I guess I can forge ahead and trim exactly the size of the ruler. Someone please stop me if that sounds wrong.

    How did you do this??? I would think your way will be helpful down the road on these really complicated ones.

    If you have the DJ triangle, don't you have the square as well? The square is the trim size. It is 5" square for a 4.5" finished block.

    Your blocks look great.

    If you are referring to her post#264, that is the foundation printout from EQ. See her post#229.

    Jeanine - if you are asking me about the miniature quilt - I certainly didnt do it but would love to try one like it as far as I know - no pattern. Although I did pick up a pattern for a super small compass rose or lone star once.

    what is "eep?" I think that was written a few posts ago ???

    Cre8t - EPP is english paper piecing. This is the type most commonly used for grandmothers flower garden. The fabric is basted over precision cut papers and then whip stitched together. There are several vairations, but this is the essence.

    I love English Paper Piecing. That is what I though paper piecing was until last year. In fact, I am doing some epp for these blocks as I can't do foundation piecing by hand.

    Jeanine, can you explain how you would use EPP with DJ blocks? I've done them PP but can't get a mental picture of how you would use EPP. thanks!!!

    Oh my goodness!! This is absolutely stunning!!!! It looks like it might have been appliqued, with ribbon roses, rick rack in the border and obviously gorgeous quilting in 2 shades of colours. I really want to add
    this to my to do list.

    Does anyone know if there is a pattern to it?????

    ** just saw that there may not be a pattern, rats. May have to try my hand later at drafting one**


    On a Dear Jane note, I can finish my week 3 blocks tomorrow since I am finally done my stretch of 6 shifts for work and can concentrate on them!! Pictures to follow soon!!

    Today was hectic but I was determined to complete a block for my Lemon Jane. I finally have 4 blocks completed and God willing, I will be caught up by next week. I am really having fun working on the blocks. I haven't taken any pictures yet. I will wait until I have more completed. I love all of the blocks that have been posted.

    Hi Linda - I completed mine in the same way - yours looks great - with all the seams, mine is a bit lumpy - maybe I need to trim a bit.... thanks for showing your pics.

    Week 3 Blocks completed!

    I loved the revision of A1 - so happy it was posted before I started mine - and for the hand piecing, I sure am glad I recalled reading that silk thread is the best for making your stitches disappear, mine almost did - a whole lot better than any I'd done before with regular cotton thread. Can anyone point me to the best source for Silk Thread? Here are my latest blocks.
