Dear Jane Blocks

These are the Dear Jane blocks I have made so far. They are in no particular order.

I finished my 52nd Dear Jane block today. A 11 Pebbles Protest.

I am making a scrappy Jane. All of my fabrics are from projects I have already made, gifts from friends or pieces bought as a memory of a particular day out. I started in January 2008 and I can say I have learnt lots so far on this journey. In hindsight some of my fabric choices may not be the best and I may decide to do some blocks again. I had no plan at the beginning and just jumped in and made a block from a piece of fabric I thought would suit that block. I intend to start sashing my blocks soon and I am considering whether I will place my blocks in a layout that suits my fabric choices, rather than layed out in the traditional manner of A 1 to M 13.


More Morrell Quilt blocks next time.
