    Dear Jane - Row F = Finished!

    What a fun weekend! Got 4 blocks done. Made the melon seeds on F13 too big and left myself no seam allowance. Love that Elmer's! Unpicked the thread, soaked the glue line with a wet Q-tip and waited 5 minutes. Came right off and I was able to put smaller ones on. 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 Row F up to the top so I'll have room for more. I like to have them there so I can check colors, etc for the next row. Time to finish the left side triangles now before I start Row G.
    Thanks for looking!!

    Those are beautiful. What size are these blocks? The whole bunch look so big, and the little ones look so small!!! You are doing a beautiful job on these blocks, I would love to do this but I hate paper piecing. It looks like, or should I say, sounds like no stress...in no time you will be done.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
