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.

They can't all be beautiful, some blocks have to be plain jane's so the other blocks can shine!

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!

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!
