    Love the fabric I had for G1 - been looking for a place to use it! Was happy to use the multiple HST's method (8) to do G2. Nice to do a strictly piecing block!
  2. Dear Jane - Those darn melon seeds -- conquered!!

  3. Dear Jane - Tiptoeing through the triangles - Left side

Funny how it can look "OK" on the table, but when you take a picture - oh, yuck, so crooked! However, because it will be lying on its side it is not so noticeable!
    Time to start Row G! (Just for a break!)

    Thanks for following my journey!

Changed my applique method thanks to a hint from Glady (GV09) who posts her Dear Janes and many other wonderful projects.
    So here are F10 through 13.

    I finally bit the bullet and unpinned my display wall, moving

  6. Dear Jane - Boy did I "F" one up!

    First is F1 which turned out fine and then F2 BTW on the F1 I trimmed off the seam allowance on obe side of the center octagon prior to appliqueing it! But with a little fray check along the raw edge it appliqued just fine! Phew!

  7. Dear Jane - One here, one there...

Did also get the B&White quilt ready to bind. Isn't it great when you think, "Ahhh, only one more block to quilt", then you look again and it was done! They are all done!
    Enjoy your day!

    Thanks, as always, for looking!

  9. Dear Jane - Easy? I think not!

Not pleased with the uneven"rays" of E5 but will accept it as it lines up with my pattern. *sigh*

  10. Dear Jane - "E" is for Eek! E4 is tough!
