New Year’s Eve… eve

Last night I made two more Dear Jane blocks.

<—This little block is 5 inches square. It has 28 pieces in it! I used another fabric from the stash my Aunt Jean left me. It's called A-1 "Pinwheel Gone Awry." I paper pieced each row, then stitched the rows together by hand. I found it was easier to match the seam lines that way.

This block also has Aunt Jean’s fabric in it. I think it is as sweet as can be! Love the little hearts, though I’m not a fan of blue anymore. Funny how our tastes change, isn’t it? This is B-2 “Sweet Tater Pie.” I used half square triangles to make two 5 inch pieced squares. One of the squares is the foundation, the circle was cut from the other square and appliqued on to make the center portion.

I have to work today from 8-3, but after that, more stitching to bring in the new year.

Happy QUILTY New Years, Everyone!

  1. Looks good! I want to do the pie one and was trying to work out if it was appliqued and you just answered my question! I know I can look up the hints and tips on the Dear Jane site but I seem to end up doing things however it’s easiest for me even if it’s not the easiest way so to speak. I only managed 1 block yesterday. Not sure what I will do today.
