Another Dear Jane Block

Hand pieced this one last night -- A-3 Hunter's Moon. Not too difficult. I find hand piecing is as relaxing as hand quilting and hand applique. It feels good to have the needle in hand.
Did manage to finish machine quilting the Scrappy Pineapple Blossom today. Have the binding on, just need to stitch it down. Spent some time searching for the label I already printed out last month -- still can't find it -- know that I put it away someplace safe. Guess I'll have to clean out the fabric stash cabinet and see if it's stuck to something in there! Probably be a few days before I finish the binding anyway, but I can always make another label.

Great block! I can't believe that people hand piece those DJ blocks! It amazes me!

I remember this block, I think I just appliqued it. I am always looking for the easy way out.

I got the Dear Jane block this winter, but have yet to make a block! This one is sweet - and I see that you pieced it! Looks nice.

How did you quilt your Scrappy Pineapples? I am looking forward to seeing a finished photo -could you share the label too once it is done?

Cheers!

Yeahhh for anohter DJ block! I jsut love that quilt, but can't get past the perfection I had wanted. Now that I"m "maverick" maybe I'll try it again - but with a maverick twist!

This is a beautiful block. You've done a wonderful job of piecing it and getting the curves really flat. :-)

Hi Joanne, I read your blog from beginning to end yesterday while I at my lunch at work. I feel like I know you nos! Love your log home - always thought I'd love to live in a log home. Your quilts are great. Looking forward to a long quilty internet friendship.

I appliqued this block too...I think I've made it twice. Good luck with your DJ, I don't think I'd have the patience to hand piece everything, although I'm thinking now I might try...

I've always wanted to make a DJ quilt. Seeing you start one just might inspire me :) Looking good!
