With the Nearly Insane quilt top completed and ready for quilting, it means that there is nothing stopping me forging ahead with the Dear Jane blocks. Here is block B7 World Series. Each draw usually means that I will be using the same colour. Draw 1 is orange, so all my orange Kim Diehl fabrics are being thrown into the mix.
Dear Jane Block - B7 World Series
As I said at the start, I will picking up new techniques as I go along and that learning is part of the fun for me. The construction tips I found for this block involved applique, reverse applique and then some more applique. Not the most efficient use of fabric, but I liked the idea of getting the melons looking round with the reverse applique technique. Once I have built up some confidence with all these techniques, then I hope to use my informed judgement about choosing which method to use for each block that comes my way.
