Dear Jane B-4, C-3

Anina (Dear Baby Jane Leader) threated us with our lives if we didn't finish our Dear Jane blocks this weekend...just kidding, actually she offered a chance at a giveaway to all who were caught up. Which is really a much nicer option.

I did Friday's block already (Simple Simon M-10) so I only had to catch up with Monday's block, Chris's Soccer Field B-4. I saved it for the weekend because it is paper pieced and I had never tried that before. It came out really well. All thanks to the method and not the skill of the sewer, I promise:


And I even did an extra block, Rayelle's Fence C-3. I have to rip out the bottom third so the lines radiate outward like the top portion. I apparently was not paying attention when I sewed this one up:


That was about all I accomplished this weekend. Except for more hexagons sewn up during Red Sox games. (I don't even want to talk about this weekend's series. A travesty. I am looking foreward to tomorrow's home opener. I have the day off from work and plan on eating nachos at a local bar with my husband. Oh ya, while watching the ring ceremony and game...but I'm really most looking forward to the nachos.)

I really do love the red and white blocks! It could be a tribute to the Red Sox. I am with you, what a travesty!! I home that now that they are home things will turn around! Have fun tomorrow.

Love the new blocks, although you're a show-off for going ahead!

Kidding.

Jen, I'm glad I'm not the only one just learning paper piecing. Did you pp C-3 as well or regular piecing? It looks great, but I see what you mean about the direction. It would look awesome to have them all radiating out from the center. They both look really nice. Go Sox!

Great blocks, threats and all. How were those nachos? Much better game.

see your block is so neat and nice, and i cheated! Anina says "isn't foundation piecing fun?" not for me! I would need a babysitter or will need very soon for some of these blocks to make me do the foundation piecing and dry my tears while I struggle.
