Just so happens I had this one already done!
I had this one finished too! I didn't do a very good job on this one but really don't plan on redoing it.
Cynthia, another great block.
Patricia Faye:I didn't do a very good job on this one
They can't all be beautiful, some blocks have to be plain jane's so the other blocks can shine!
My C-1... I had completed this one over the weekend, not knowing it would be on this week's list!
Faye, I just LOVE this fabric, it make a beautiful block.
I think this is my favorite block so far!!! Thanks, Jacy!
I hand pieced this one:
My seam ripper got a workout on this one! It looked deceivingly simple, but for some reason, every time I got the inner frame snugged up nicely to the points on the square, I was somehow losing too much ground on the frame and my block would be small. I finally ripped out the frames for the umpteenth time, and cut some new inner frame pieces wider than one inch. Then, after sewing on the wider inner frame pieces, I squared the block back down to 4 inches. Then the outer frame worked fine. I think my photo is a little blurry on the left side but here it is! Moving on!
All your blocks are stunning. Such beautiful fabrics and such a variety of colors. Love them all.

Beautiful block Jeanne
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Thanks Judy. I don't know if it shows in the photo but my method of documenting this quilt has one drawback that I have to figure out. How to display the blocks. I am heading to a guild meeting on Tuesday and I wanted to share my Dear Jane Excitement but have to come up with a way to display them where they won't al slip out from between the pages and fall on the floor.

Jeanne I file in see through plastic archival sheets. Instructions, paperwork, templates, finished block. I have a big binder and file in order of block. Yes, I am a tad compulsive about quilt block organization, lol. It works for me!
