Default Not quite a Dear Jane...

Hi, this started out as a Dear Jane and became a Dear Jeanne. I am Jeanne! Firstly, I just couldn't do the 4.5" blocks so the blocks are 7.5". Then I totally changed the border. Instead of the ice cream cones I made huge double layered prairie points. You can't see it on the photos, but the points have a shirt button in the point, holding them down and not flopping. The whole thing was quite a project and I respect anyone who stuck to the plan.

Really like your Jeanne . I recognize the Dear Jane blocks..reason -- I have all the 4 in finished blocks made and all the tris and corners. Ready to be joined These have been finished for 5 + years. Perhaps this will be the Fall that I actually get back to Jane. You have encouraged me.

Lovely job on your Jeanne and such a great idea to use the larger blocks

OMG, did you make all the blocks? That's quite an undertaking at any size. I like your border, wish I could see the whole thing.
