    DH is down with the flu so all the holiday plans have been canceled - no one can enter our home


    upside i just made a mini jane block its A5.

    the first pic is the mini block that finishes at 2.5 inches and the 2nd pic is the mini block next to the traditional size jane block that finishes at 4.5 inches.

    i'm thinking i need to make a mini jane quilt to match american jane.

    i'm gonna try making a mini triangle this weekend.

    A5 mini finishes at 2.5 inches

    That is remarkable in that size! Nice, accurate work Klue!! It looks so teeny compared to the 4.5" one. :thumbup:

    i know, it doesn't really look small until you see it next to the small 4.5 inch block.

    thank you for the lovely compliment. its done by paper piecing, i would never be able to do it otherwise.

    its paper pieced in 3 sections and then you join the 3 sections together to form the entire block.

    I hope you have had your flu shots and that your husband stays hydrated and rests! How does one go about reducing the size of squares?

    i have dear jane and electric quilt software - this makes changing sizes very easy.

    i have not had a flu shot but i'm well versed in infectious disease. i have a PhD in Molecular Microbiology and my research focus is infectious disease.

    I think a 4,5 inch block is very small, and your mini is even smaller! And made to perfect.

    Your blocks are just great Kelly. Glad we are'nt making them that small! You would probably make it easy for us if we were. Sorry you're DH is ill. I came down with a head cold/flu on C-day. I had the flu shot too and am never sick.

    no its not hard but laying down that first piece is a bit of a struggle for some people.

    the real plus side to paper piecing is once you get the grasp of it you can paper piece any block under the sun unlike traditional piecing where you continually have to learn different methods.

    here is a link to a very popular tute on paper piecing. its for a very simple jane block and is a good jumping off point.
